Rams make McVay youngest head coach in National Football League history

Adjust Comment Print

Sean McVay will become the next head coach of the Los Angeles Rams, the team announced on Thursday. McVay will turn 31 on January 24. Before his time as coordinator, he spent four seasons with Washington coaching tight ends and also spent a season with the Buccaneers at the National Football League level (meaning he's worked with both Jon and Jay Gruden).

McVay has served as the Washington Redskins' offensive coordinator for the past three years. "I am confident in his vision to make this team a consistent victor and to ultimately bring a Super Bowl title home to Los Angeles". Instead, he will now receive the opportunity to mold quarterback Jared Goff, who was the first overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. In comparison, Washington ranked No. 25 in total offense the year before Sean McVay became offensive coordinator. They finished this season with a 4-12 record.

The Los Angeles Rams have found a new head coach. The 49ers won five Super Bowls with John McVay in its front office. This was thanks to McVay's work with Kirk Cousins and Jay Gruden and his ability to implement a successful offensive scheme.

The Redskins will go into the 2017 season with a new defensive and offensive coordinator.

The Rams have not had a winning season since 2003 and have not made the playoffs since 2004.

If you were to take a survey of offensive players at the Redskins' facility in Ashburn, Va. regarding McVay, you would likely get similar answers across the board.

Meanwhile, the Redskins will now need to find McVay's replacement just a week after they fired defensive coordinator Joe Barry.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Wednesday that if the Rams hired McVay, he would try to bring on former Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.
