Rams coach Sean McVay plans to be the team's primary play-caller on offense.
McVay called plays for the Redskins under head coach Jay Gruden, so it's no surprise that he plans to do the same in Los Angeles. Whoever the Rams choose to be their new offensive coordinator (they were blocked from interviewing Dolphins OL coach Chris Foerster) will have to take a backseat to McVay. The youngest coach in NFL history is going to have a lot on his plate this season. Jan 13 - 3:30 PM

Rams hired Redskins OC Sean McVay as head coach.

It couldn't be a bigger 180 from Jeff Fisher, who was a well-trodden "defensive mind." A wiz kid offensive coordinator, McVay is still only 30, and will be the youngest head coach in NFL history. Mentored by the Gruden brothers — Jon reportedly spoke glowingly of Jay's assistant during the Rams' search — McVay is the son of a longtime 49ers executive. He's been a Redskins assistant since 2010, rising from assistant tight ends coach to coordinator. It's a bold hire for a team that frankly needed one. McVay's risk is high, but so is the potential reward.

ESPN's Alden Gonzalez reports the Rams are "zeroing in" on Redskins OC Sean McVay in their head-coaching search.

This echoes what Gonzalez reported earlier on Thursday. Per Gonzalez, the Rams are expected to pass on interviewing Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan, a pretty strong indication they're targeting McVay as their guy.

According to ESPN's Alden Gonzalez, Redskins OC Sean McVay is still viewed as the favorite to fill the Rams' head-coaching vacancy.

McVay was brought in for a second interview on Wednesday, which must have gone well. The Rams seem to have narrowed their search down to McVay and Anthony Lynn, who will meet with Rams officials for the second time on Thursday. Kyle Shanahan, who had his interview pushed back because of inclement weather, may not meet with the Rams at all. If McVay gets the job, he's expected to bring on Wade Phillips as his defensive coordinator. McVay would be the youngest head coach in NFL history at age 30.

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports Redskins OC Sean McVay will have a second interview for the Rams' head-coaching vacancy on Wednesday.

Per Pelissero, "things are heating up" regarding McVay and the Rams. The 30-year-old is the only candidate known to have two interviews with L.A. And according to Yahoo! Sports' Charles Robinson, ESPN analyst Jon Gruden talked with the Rams in an advisory role. That's notable because Gruden's younger brother, Jay, is the coach in Washington. So it's possible Jon put in a good word for McVay. He would be a refreshing hire and completely different from Jeff Fisher.

CBS' Jason La Canfora and ESPN's John Keim both consider Redskins OC Sean McVay a strong contender for the Rams' head-coaching vacancy.

Profootballtalk reported something similar two days ago. Only 30, McVay is this offseason's wiz kid candidate. He'd be about as big of a 180 from Jeff Fisher as possible. The Rams are seeking an offensive mind as they look to jump start Jared Goff's career.
Jan 10 - 6:06 PM

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports the Rams are "spending a lot of time doing their homework" on Redskins OC Sean McVay.

Only 30, McVay interviewed with the Rams on Thursday and will meet with the 49ers on Monday. It would be a bit of a surprise if the Rams took a shot on what would be the youngest head coach in NFL history with all of the quality coaches available, but the Rams may believe McVay is the best option to mentor Jared Goff considering how well he has done with Kirk Cousins in Washington. Even if it does not happen this cycle, McVay is on the fast track to a head coaching job.
Jan 8 - 12:50 AM

Redskins OC Sean McVay will interview for the 49ers' head-coaching vacancy on Monday.

That will follow McVay's reported interview with the Rams on Thursday. Still only 30, McVay has had great success working under coach Jay Gruden, and would be a youthful option for teams looking for a fresh start.
Jan 3 - 5:20 PM

Redskins OC Sean McVay will interview with the Rams on Thursday.

The Rams have already lined up a number of candidates including Cardinals OC Harold Goodwin, Jaguars interim coach Doug Marrone, Patriots OC Josh McDaniels, Patriots DC Matt Patricia and Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan. The Redskins have finished with a winning record in two of McVay's three seasons as offensive coordinator. If he gets the Rams' job, the 30-year-old McVay would become the youngest head coach in NFL history.
Jan 2 - 10:39 PM

Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports the Rams have "reached out" to Redskins OC Sean McVay about their head coaching vacancy.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports McVay will interview on Thursday, but his name is one of many linked with the Rams already this cycle. It is not clear how much McVay has to do with the Redskins' offensive success with Jay Gruden running the show, but the 31-year-old (later this month) clearly has a bright coaching future.
Jan 2 - 9:08 AM

Redskins promoted TEs coach Sean McVay to offensive coordinator.

Only 27 years old, McVay spent the past three seasons as the Redskins' tight ends coach. It's a risky hire considering McVay is younger than some of the players he'll be coaching, but new coach Jay Gruden has already said he'll call plays next season. That will allow McVay to ease into the job. Former Redskins TE Chris Cooley recently praised McVay to ESPN. "He had the highest understanding of an offense of any position coach I’ve ever been around," Cooley said. "Two years ago I said if anyone becomes a head coach on this staff it would be Sean McVay." McVay is an unknown, outside-the-box hire for a team that played things safe at head coach.
