Pro scout Carthon to join Rams
Steve Wyche of NFL.com reports that the St. Louis Rams are set to hire Falcons pro scout Ran Carthon as their pro personnel director. Carthon will re-join Les Snead, the Falcons former director of player personnel who was hired as the Rams new general manager in February.
Carthon is the son of NFL assistant coach and former player Maurice Carthon, who is currently on the Kansas City Chiefs coaching staff. Ran played briefly in the NFL having played 9 games with the Indianapolis Colts between 2005-06 after entering the league as an undrafted running back in 2004, following a career at the University of Florida. After his playing career was over, Carthon joined the Falcons scouting department in 2008 as a pro scout, where he has served since.
