Rams | Kennedy happier now that Kollar has moved on

Bill Coats, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports St. Louis Rams DT Jimmy Kennedy is happier these days now that defensive line coach Bill Kollar has moved on. "It's a different environment," Kennedy said. "When you love coming to work every day, it just makes your job that much more fun." His play didn't support his status as a first-round draft choice, due at least to some degree to his oil-and-water relationship with the leather-lunged Kollar. "I'm not bashing the guy, because I know what he was trying to get out of me," Kennedy said. "But his teaching technique isn't for everyone." New defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has been happy with Kennedy so far. "The guy works hard, and he has more speed than I realized. He's smart, he doesn't make a lot of mistakes, and he listens, said Haslett. He's going to be a heck of a player." Nose tackle is a new position for Kennedy and the learning process for him is well underway.
