Redskins OC Sean McVay Hired as Rams Head Coach

It’s officially official

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Washington Redskins Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Sean McVay(30) became the youngest NFL Head Coach in NFL history today after being named the HC of the Los Angeles Rams today. McVay has been talked about as a potential head coach for the past two seasons, but most people did not think he would get there this soon. McVay started with the Redskins in 2010 as an assistant tight ends coach. From 2011-2013 he was the team’s TE coach. The following season he was promoted to Offensive Coordinator, taking over for Kyle Shanahan.

McVay reportedly won the Rams over in his first interview, and was invited back for a second interview yesterday. He stayed overnight and was announced as the Head Coach today. McVay reportedly wants former Broncos DC Wade Phillips to have the same position under him in LA, and could look to current Redskins TEs coach, and Wade’s son, Wes Phillips as his OC.

The Redskins will go into the 2017 season with a new defensive and offensive coordinator. The Redskins have interviewed a few candidates for the DC job, with Gus Bradley considered the favorite. For OC, the Redskins are expected to promote from within. OL Coach Bill Callahan and QB coach Matt Cavanaugh both have past experience at the position, and Phillips is also a candidate if he doesn’t follow McVay to LA.rience i
