Sean McVay informs Rams that he will be returning to coach the seventh season

LOS ANGELES — The Rams announced Friday that Sean McVay will be returning to coaching for a seventh season.

McVay led the Rams to a Super Bowl championship in 2021, and then they suffered through a 5-12 season 2022. McVay said Monday that he would reflect on the season and decide if he would return.

McVay stated, “Don’t rush into any type of decision.”

It took four days.

McVay will be 37 years old in 11 days. He has been the Rams’ coach ever since 2017, when Stan Kroenke, then 30-year-old McVay became the youngest coach in modern NFL History.

McVay was granted an extension last spring that made him one the highest-paid NFL coaches. McVay is still under contract for many years.

McVay was the Rams’ leader to the playoffs, leading them to two Super Bowls and four more in six seasons. He also won Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium.

The Rams finished this season with the worst record for a Super Bowl champion in league history.

McVay’s record is 60-38 and is 7-3 in playoffs.

McVay described Monday his passion for coaching as “a beautiful torture” McVay said that his desire to evaluate whether it was time to leave had been growing over time.

He said, “This has been many years.” “This isn’t a new thing.”

McVay was tempted to switch to broadcasting after the Super Bowl victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. According to reports, he would have been paid millions of dollars annually by broadcast networks. The extension came quickly.

Kevin Demoff, chief operating officer of the Rams, stated Thursday that McVay had not given the team a timeline.

Demoff stated that McVay could have resigned if the Rams had contingency plans for a situation such as this.

Matthew Stafford, Rams quarterback, has stated that he would be returning to the Rams for the 15th NFL season regardless if McVay was the coach.

Three-time NFL defensive player, Aaron Donald, is a defensive tackle. He has stated that he will play as long McVay was his coach. Donald has not spoken to reporters since he was sidelined for the Nov. 27 match against the Seattle Seahawks due to a season-ending ankle injury.

The Rams are also looking for an offensive coordinator. This week, Liam Coen returned to Kentucky as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. McVay was always responsible for calling plays. Coen will now call them.

McVay told assistant coaches this week that McVay would not stand in the way of them seeking out other opportunities.
