If Sean McVay does decide to return to coach the Rams in 2023, he’s going to have a major opening on his staff.

Kentucky officially announced Liam Coen is returning to be the program’s offensive coordinator. The move was previously reported in December, but Coen declined to address it at the time.

As part of his statement released by Kentucky on his return, Coen said, “I also want to thank Coach McVay for his mentorship and guidance and the Rams organization for their support throughout this process.”

Coen was the Rams assistant receivers coach from 2018-2019 and the club’s assistant QBs coach in 2020. He left Los Angeles to be Kentucky’s offensive coordinator and QBs coach in 2021. But he replaced now Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell as the Rams offensive coordinator in 2022.

Depending on how things shake out, Los Angeles could also be in need of a defensive coordinator, as the Broncos have requested to interview Raheem Morris for their head coaching vacancy.

  1. McVay should bail as well. Let someone else deal with the fall out of “F them picks”

  2. Coaches abandoning players. Crickets. Players abandoning teams – get destroyed by the media. Make it make senses.

  3. The Assts have the vibe that McVay is leaving. I think you’ll see a few more Rams assts making moves over the next few weeks.

  4. The Rams, LOL. Garbage championship that no one will remember, other than if the Bengals’ o-line had been better, the Rams lose. Gotta love the arrogance of Les Snead and his “F them picks” crap. He thought he was swindling the Lions into a 1st round pick that was going to be in the ballpark of picks 28-32. Instead, the Lions get the 6th pick. That’s hilarious, couldn’t make it up if I tried.
