The Los Angeles Rams have seen their coaching staff and front office get raided this offseason, with other teams flocking to Thousand Oaks to hire coaches away from Sean McVay and Les Snead.

On Tuesday night, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that the Seahawks are planning to hire Shane Waldron as their offensive coordinator, the fourth assistant coach to leave the Rams this offseason.

Waldron worked as the passing game coordinator for the Rams in 2020 and also coached the quarterbacks in 2019.

Waldron hasn’t called offensive plays in the NFL, so he’s somewhat of an unknown when it comes to being an offensive coordinator in the NFL. The Rams hired Kevin O’Connell as their offensive coordinator last offseason, rather than promoting Waldron to that role.

He’s been an assistant in the NFL for seven seasons, the last four in L.A. He followed McVay from Washington to the Rams in 2017 when McVay became the head coach.
