Head Coach Sean McVay More Likely to Leave Los Angeles Rams Than Stay

The Sean McVay era appears to be coming to an end for the Los Angeles Rams. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported Sunday afternoon that people within the organization believe McVay is more likely than not to leave the team following this season.

McVay flirted with retirement and a  job in the media following the Rams' Super Bowl LVI win but returned this season in the hopes of continuing the team's success. It didn't work out. The Rams are 5-11 entering today's game with the Seattle Seahawks and rank 26th in points scored.

Given the rigors and demands of being an NFL head coach, it makes sense for McVay to investigate greener pastures while his wunderkind aura remains intact. The Rams are short on cap space and draft assets heading into the 2023 season, so a quick turnaround isn't particularly likely. Their first-round pick belongs to the Detroit Lions thanks to the trade that acquired quarterback Matthew Stafford, and they're less than $2 million under the 2023 salary cap, according to overthecap.
