Los Angeles Rams Head Coach Sean McVay wins 2017 Coach of the Year

The hardware continues to pile up for the Los Angeles Rams!

NFL: NFL Honors-Red Carpet Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Sean McVay is living the high life right now. He’s ridiculously photogenic, has a bombshell girlfriend, and - at 32 years old - just received the highest award the NFL offers for a head coach. Not bad for a rookie.

And they said he was too young.

He’s the fourth coach in Rams history to win the award, and the first since Dick Vermeil had a similar season that came out of nowhere in 1999.

McVay instantly energized a team that constantly floundered under former coach Jeff Fisher and took led them straight to the top of the NFC West - and their first division title since 2003.

He was brought in because of his offensive prowess and boy did he deliver. The Rams went worst to first in points per game and McVay made all the Jared Goff doubters eat crow.

There’s a ton of work that needs to get done this offseason, but that can wait until next week.

Today we celebrate.

Congrats coach.
