    "I just thought it was the best (situation)," Ramsdell said. "I had some other things to weigh."

    In San Diego, Ramsdell replaces Brian Schottenheimer, who joined Eric Mangini's New York Jets staff as offensive coordinator. Ramsdell interviewed with the Chargers on Tuesday and Wednesday in San Diego.

    "I was very impressed with Marty Schottenheimer and Cam Cameron," Ramsdell said. "It was a very extensive interview."

    Cameron, the Chargers' offensive coordinator, was among three finalists for the Rams' head-coaching position, which ultimately went to Scott Linehan two weeks ago.

    Ramsdell, 51, had been with the Rams for all 11 seasons that the franchise has been in St. Louis. In that time, he has coached quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends at various times.

    "It's going to be real tough to leave," he said. "Obviously, to be here that long is very fortunate. It was a great run, but I understand the business."
