As McVay leads Rams into playoffs, other teams search for ‘next Sean McVay’

THOUSAND OAKS — When Sean McVay was named Rams head coach, two weeks short of his 31st birthday, the response around the league was mostly apprehensive. McVay was too young – the youngest head coach in NFL history. He was too inexperienced – with no tenure as a head coach and only three years as a coordinator. In hiring him, the Rams had taken a leap of faith. At least, it seemed that way at the time. Two years later, most teams would gladly sell their soul to take that leap. As the Rams return ...
