Rams Hold Second Interview With Sean McVay

At the age of 30, Sean McVay could be on the verge of becoming the youngest coach in the modern era of the NFL. The Redskins’ offensive coordinator is having a second meeting with the Rams, Tom Pelissero of USA Today tweets. Meanwhile, sources tell Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports (on Twitter) that he is the “leading” candidate for the job. There have been a number of candidates for the Rams’ vacancy, but McVay is the first to receive a follow-up interview.Sean McVay (vertical)

As a head coach, McVay could conceivably be younger than a few of the players on his roster. That doesn’t seem to bother the Rams and it hasn’t precluded the 49ers from considering him for their job either. McVay is widely credited for developing Kirk Cousins into a solid quarterback and that’s the type of acumen L.A. is looking for as they groom No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff. Despite his youth, we ID’d McVay as a top ten coaching candidate for the Rams back in December.

So far, there have been 13 candidates identified in the Rams’ search, though only a dozen remain after Doug Marrone was given the job in Jacksonville.

    He will take it. The Rams are a very undesirable team to coach. Bad team, bad personnel, bad GM, not many picks… but he is young and will want the opportunity. Then in a year or 2 he will be an OC again. (Example – Josh McDaniels)

      Not really
      You got the No. 1 pick and possible franchise QB last year. Your in LA and about to move into a brand new stadium
      Defense isn’t bad at all
      With the RIGHT coaches, LA should be a very desirable gig.
