Sean McVay Deep Into Interviews With Los Angeles Rams For Head Coaching Job
The Washington Redskins may end up losing their offensive coordinator to head coaching interviews. The Los Angeles Rams have showed heavy interest in Sean McVay for their vacancy.
At the beginning of the offseason, Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay was getting some buzz as a potential head coaching option. The 30-year-old was coming off of a terrific season working with the Redskins, and had helped lead them to a historic season offensively. He helped Kirk Cousins to produce a nearly 5,000 passing yards, and really did some good work in the passing game.

Still, despite McVay’s success, many thought that he would not land a head coaching job just yet. After all, he is extremely young, so teams may have viewed that as a disadvantage for him. That would solely be due to a lack of experience. However, the Los Angeles Rams have showed a heavy interest in the young coach, and he appears to be in the midst of an intense round of interviews with the Rams, per The MMQB’s Albert Breer.

This means that the Rams have a lot of interest in bringing on McVay as their next head coach. The second interview is often when teams really express whether or not the coach is their top candidate. It appears that the Rams are zeroing in on McVay, though they still do have some interest in former Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn. That said, Lynn is interviewing with the Los Angeles Chargers (yes, the LA Chargers) in the near future, so he could end up landing there.
Regardless of what happens with McVay, the Redskins need to start operating like he is going to leave. The team has a lot of strong internal candidates for the offensive coordinator position, and offensive line coach Bill Callahan is likely the name that would top the list. It would be unfortunate for the Redskins to lose the young talent, but they definitely could replace him.

For McVay, this could be a great opportunity, but it also could be a really tough job. The Rams sunk a lot of assets into drafting Jared Goff, who looked nothing like a franchise quarterback in his first season. Maybe he will improve in the future, but he is not looking to be worth of a No. 1 overall pick right now. McVay would have his work cut out for him if he accepts the Rams job, but the 30-year-old could be a good fit for the team.
