When the Jets parted ways with offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur a couple of weeks ago, there was word of interest from other teams in LaFleur’s services.

It appears the Rams were on that list. Albert Breer of SI.com reports that LaFleur is one of three people Rams head coach Sean McVay has spoken to about the Rams’ offensive coordinator job.

Eagles quarterbacks coach Brian Johnson and former Colts offensive coordinator Marcus Brady are also on that list.

Breer reports that things appear to be heading in LaFleur’s direction. If he does wind up being hired by the Rams, he’d be taking a job that his brother Matt held under McVay during the 2017 season.

  1. Don’t count out Jay Gruden or Greg Olson. Both on the staff and have experience as OCs. Seems like LaFleur is the better choice of the 3 being mentioned. Mike’s bro, Matt, was McVay’s QB coach in 2017? Mike struggled as the op offensive mind with the Jets.
    Brady struggled as #2 offensive mind (Frank Reich) and Johnson , while successfule was # 3 offensive mind on Eagles behind Nick Sirianni and OC Shane Steichen. I’m sure Mcvay has more knowledge of the 5 potential candidates than what, we, the public know.

  2. MLF did a pretty good job in terms of offensive architecture and play-calling. He didn’t do a good job coaching a young QB, and didn’t build a simpler version of his offense that would be easier for a young QB to digest and execute. LA could be a really good fit for him.
