After four years as the Los Angeles Rams’ offensive line coach, Aaron Kromer is no longer on Sean McVay’s staff. The unfortunate news was reported on Thursday night, with the two sides mutually agreeing to split ahead of the 2021 season.

It leaves a massive void on McVay’s coaching staff, one that will be difficult to fill. Kromer is an outstanding offensive line coach, responsible for helping turn around what was one of the worst units in football before his arrival in 2017.

If you need evidence of just how respected Kromer is in Los Angeles, take a look at this message from Rams center Austin Blythe. He called Kromer one of the best and most genuine coaches he’s ever been around, crediting Kromer for giving him a shot after he was waived by the Colts.

Kromer has been a big supporter of Blythe, helping turn him into a starter at both guard and center in the last three years. Blythe will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason and without Kromer on the staff, one has to wonder if the Rams will prioritize him like they have in recent years.

The Rams still have talent along their offensive line, but if there’s a drop-off in 2021, fingers will point to the departure of Kromer as a possible reason for that.
