Sean McVay on his future: We’ll deal with that stuff at a later time

At this point, it’s clear from multiple reports that Sean McVay is seriously contemplating stepping away from coaching the Rams.

The club finished a 5-12 season with a 19-16 overtime loss to the Seahawks on Sunday — easily the worst record of McVay’s six-year tenure with the franchise.

McVay said on Friday that TV offers are flattering, but at the same time, he was focused on his current job.

He reiterated that after Sunday’s loss when asked directly if he would be coaching the Rams in 2023.

I’m not thinking about that right now,” McVay said in his press conference. “Nothing’s changed from kind of where we left things off on Friday. … I’m right here right now and we’ll deal with that stuff at a later time.”

McVay was asked a follow-up on what’s making him unsure and said he would only answer questions about the game and not himself.

But, McVay also said he didn’t think about a “last” anything during the game and noted he doesn’t have a timeline to make a decision.

In six years under McVay, the Rams have gone 60-38, winning Super Bowl LVI last season. McVay has a 7-3 postseason record with Los Angeles winning three NFC West titles and two conference championships since he was hired in 2017.

  1. I like McVay, I think he’s a good coach but if the rumours are true that he doesn’t wanna be apart of the rebuild all I’ll see him as is a quitter

  2. Sean McVay found out fast why you can’t run an NFL team like a Madden franchise. They got their one super bowl and mortgaged the future of the organization for it. Now, he doesn’t want to stick around for years and years of rebuilding.

  3. Pretty arrogant for a guy who got smoked in LIII. I’m sure “eff them picks” will work out great at his next stop though.

  4. He knows what he’s facing with a team filled with lazy, overpaid veterans with zero upside. He made this bed and will force someone else to sleep in the mess he left.

  5. Waaaay to much drama with this guy. Be a coach or leave. dude is not even 40. Gonna run away after a down year?

  6. Happy to hear that Biff the Wonder Skunk (McVay) is thinking about packing it in. Dude comes across like he invented football. Turns tail at the first hint of adversity. Yep, a true leader of men…

  7. Lots of angry, old Boomers in this thread, LOL.

    McVay is the youngest NFL coach in league history. He took the Rams to two Super Bowls in four years and won it all in 2021. How many coaches can say that?

    But sure, he’s “lazy” and a “quitter”. He’s also NOT the GM and didn’t build the team. That would be Les Snead.

    But don’t let facts get in the way.

  8. Anyone who says the rams Morgages their future has no ideas what they are talking about , they made trades to get a Super Bowl win , what other franchise in the last 30 years has done any thing with draft picks?

  9. Leverage. He should get a tv job but having a job is always better when trying to get a new job, he can dictate terms. Plus the owner will know before the media.

  10. McVay taking off now that the cupboard is empty kind of reminds me of what Pete Carroll did just down the road at USC. In Carroll’s case he mortgaged the future by flouting NCAA rules and then left when the penalties came down. Both of these guys are your proverbial blonde, boy-wonder salesmen, 1.0 and 2.0.

  11. Kronke got what he wanted, a Superbowl in the new stadium.
    Then paid players and coaches with stupid contracts last offseason.
    McVey knows that strategy worked and left nothing for the next few years.

  12. Injuries derailed this season more than anything else. A healthy rams team would have been a problem for the rest of the NFC. The NFC bracket does not look very formidable. Look out next year with a healthy squad and a few new faces with the high 2nd and 3rd round picks on board. Baker should stay on as the back-up, no telling how much longer Stafford will be able to stay upright. The run first McVay offense is the better one, maybe if Stafford would buy into that and not try to play from the gun all the time he could help his O-line help him out.

    I think a lot of teams would be very happy if McVay’s 2nd tenure was as good as Pete’s Carroll’s current tenure with Seattle
