Hammerschmidt happy to be back home with Rams


Dan Hammerschmidt grew up in San Diego and owns houses in Houston and Laramie, Wyo., the previous two stops in his 25-year career as college football assistant coach. But his home, he said Saturday, always will be Fort Collins, and he’s thrilled to be back this spring after a two-year hiatus. “It’s great to be back; I’m a Ram,” Hammerschmidt said Saturday after a 2-hour, 45-minute practice at Hughes Stadium.
