The Los Angeles Rams have officially hired their newly revamped coaching staff with free agency just a month away. The change most notably begins with the historic hiring of the league’s youngest head coach in Sean McVay.
McVay shared his excitement about the talented coaches Los Angeles has been able to add for the 2017 NFL season:
“We have a great group of talented coaches that I’m very excited to work with this year,” McVay said. “They have a vast array of experiences and the qualities we are looking for as we build this staff. Their unique insight to the game will collectively make this team better as we prepare for the 2017 season.”
The Rams managed to land the most sought-after coaches in free agency, including defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and offensive line coach Aaron Kromer. Also, much like McVay, they brought in a fellow up-and-comer in offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur, who spent the last two seasons working with the Atlanta Falcons.
Among the new faces in Los Angeles, there are also a few familiar ones as well. Returning to the organization after a strong request from Todd Gurley is running back coach Skip Peete and special teams coordinator John Fassel remains onboard after leading a group that was among the best in the league despite all the Rams other faults.
Now that the coaches are out of the way, McVay and his staff can now turn their attention to rebuilding this depleted roster in Los Angeles with an event-filled offseason beginning in just a matter of weeks.
