The Rams probably will not be interviewing Kyle Shanahan, sources tell Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Nothing is finalized with Sean McVay yet, but this could be a sign that things are getting close between the two sides.
We learned this week that the powwow between Shanahan and the Rams was in limbo because Shanahan has his hands full with preparing for the Seahawks and that obviously hurts his availability. In theory, the Rams could wait for the Falcons’ season to end, but they might not be patient enough. Already, Los Angeles has moved on to the second interview stage with McVay and Bills interim coach Anthony Lynn.
In other Rams news, McVay is apparently looking to bring Wade Phillips in as DC if he’s hired. The Rams also recently received permission to interview Texans linebackers coach Mike Vrabel. For a full rundown of all head coaching searches, check out PFR’s 2017 Head Coaching Tracker.
