The Rams have a lot of spots to fill on head coach Sean McVay’s staff and they’ve identified one candidate for their vacancy at offensive line coach.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that the team has requested permission to interview Bears assistant offensive line coach Austin King. The Rams dismissed offensive line coach Kevin Carberry after the final week of the regular season.

King just finished his first season with the Bears. He was the Raiders’ tight ends coach in 2021 and an offensive quality control coach in 2020. He spent five seasons at Dayton before moving into the NFL.

King was a 2003 fourth-round pick by the Buccaneers and he played 34 games for Tampa and Atlanta during his playing career.

  1. yes, replace the guy who was given manure and couldn’t roll it in powdered sugar and get a jelly donut. They need more talent. Don’t scapegoat a coach!! Perhaps the one to replace is the guy who hired the coach?

  2. Did they watch the Bears OL this year? Worst pass-blocking unit I have seen in at least a decade. Sounds like addition by subtraction for the Bears to me. And to the argument of talent… yes the Bears roster was bottom of the barrel. But there were veterans on that unit who played the whole season not appearing to have a clue what they were doing. That’s coaching, not ability.

  3. The Bears O-line was slightly less awful then it was the year before so I guess the Rams see that as a huge accomplishment
