Rams’ Spagnuolo has opt-out clause if team is sold

The pending sale of the Rams to Illinois businessman Shahid Khan could include a potential wrinkle for the immediate future regarding the team’s head coach, Steve Spagnuolo.

Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Saturday that Spagnuolo has an opt-out clause included in the contract that he signed with the Rams, giving him the option to walk away if the team is sold.

Spagnuolo was signed to a four-year, $11.5 million contract last January.

Rams owners Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez signed the agreement for sale of the team Friday, and the league issued a statement that it is proceeding with the evaluation of the sale, which can take several months.
