Sean McVay retirement rumors: Rams HC reportedly allows assistants to seek other jobs; OC returns to Kentucky

Sean McVay has actually been meaning an early retirement from training considering that prior to the Rams won the Super Bowl in 2021. Now, the head coach might really step far from the video game, informing press reporters after Sunday’s regular-season ending that he’ll take “appropriate time” to select his instant NFL future. And even if he does return, he’ll have an essential staffer to change, with offending planner Liam Coen going back to the University of Kentucky after one season as McVay’s right-hand guy.

Shortly after Kentucky revealed the news about Coen, ESPN reported that McVay is enabling his training personnel to “search for other jobs without resistance.” The head coach stated in a group conference that he is uncertain of what his future holds, per Jeremy Fowler, and does not wish to obstruct his assistants from possibly pursuing other chances. 

Under NFL guidelines, groups can’t obstruct position coaches from speaking with for planner tasks, however they’re permitted to obstruct lateral relocations, such as a linebackers coach or protective planner taking the exact same task somewhere else. In this circumstance, the Rams will not obstruct any lateral relocations. 

That stated, do not immediately presume McVay is stepping away. According to The Athletic, even if McVay stays, training personnel modifications will be coming.

One assistant who absolutely will not be back is Coen. The 37-year-old initially invested 3 seasons with McVay from 2018-2020, initially as assistant pass receivers coach and after that assistant quarterbacks coach. After one year as Kentucky’s QBs coach and offending planner, Coen went back to the Rams for efficiently the exact same function, changing Kevin O’Connell as McVay’s leading offensive assistant this year. Now, he’s back with the Wildcats in the exact same task, completing a three-year agreement that initially came together on Dec. 12, per the Lexington Herald-Leader.

UK validated Coen’s return Tuesday, which had actually been presumed for weeks in the middle of several reports that Coen and Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops were awaiting the NFL season to end to settle the hire. … (Coen’s) offer will pay him $1.7 million next season and boost by $100,000 over the next 2 years.

Hampered by injuries to star gamers like quarterback Matthew Stafford, pass receiver Cooper Kupp and left deal with Joe Noteboom, the Rams offense took a significant action backwards after its 2021 Super Bowl run. McVay stayed the group’s play-caller while Coen manned the planner title as L.A. completed 5-12, the worst mark for any safeguarding Super Bowl champ.
