Sean McVay is letting Rams coaches seek other opportunities without resistance

Sean McVay hasn’t given any indication which way he’s leaning as he mulls retirement, but perhaps the tea leaves can tell us what might be coming. According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, McVay is letting coaches from his staff pursue opportunities with other teams without resistance.

In other words, he won’t block them from taking a job with another team, even if it’s for the same position they currently hold in Los Angeles. Teams are allowed to block coaches from lateral moves – like the Rams did with Jonathan Cooley last year – but McVay won’t do that, given his current situation and uncertainty.

That’s the first real sign that McVay might not return to the Rams in 2023.

Raheem Morris has already landed head coaching interviews with the Broncos and Colts, so it’s possible he’ll leave for a bigger opportunity this offseason. Liam Coen took a job with Kentucky, leaving a void once again at offensive coordinator.

Ra’Shaad Samples is expected to join Arizona State’s coaching staff, which was reported in December. And Jake Peetz had an offer from Nebraska in November but decided to stay with the Rams. Could he reconsider now?

The writing might be on the wall for McVay.
