Sean McVay has not made a decision regarding whether or not he will serve as head coach of the Los Angeles Rams again in 2019. He is sincerely contemplating his options, though, and the Rams would be doing themselves a disservice if they did not contemplate what they would do in the event that McVay decides to leave.
If McVay goes, the Rams would probably seek defensive coordinator Raheem Morris to take over as head coach, according to Albert Breer of The MMQB. If McVay had stepped down then, Morris, who recently completed his second season as the Rams defensive coordinator, would have been the front-runner to succeed him, and there is no sign that the organization’s thinking has altered.
Morris may not have the most glamorous name, but he has plenty of experience. From 2009 to 2011, he served as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach for three seasons. After Dan Quinn was fired as the Atlanta Falcons head coach in 2020, he served as the team’s interim head coach, going 4-7.
Until McVay decides on his future, everything is ultimately up in the air. He has stated that he will take some time to reflect, and a report suggests that one important element may be heavy on his mind.
