The Rams have employed Andy Dickerson as an assistant offensive line coach for the last nine seasons, but on Thursday it was announced that he would be joining Shane Waldron, Sean McVay’s former passing game coordinator, as a coach on the 2021 Seahawks. Dickerson becomes the sixth assistant coach on the 2020 LA Rams to depart for a new team this month.
The others are Waldron, defensive coordinator Brandon Staley, assistant head coach/linebackers coach Joe Barry, cornerbacks coach Aubrey Pleasant, and assistant quarterbacks coach Liam Coen. Special teams coordinator John Bonamego moved to a new role on the Rams and has been replaced by Joe DeCamillis.
In addition to those seven coaches, the Rams must also replace two key members of the front office in Brad Holmes and Ray Agnew, who both left for the Detroit Lions.
Waldron was hired as Seattle’s next offensive coordinator this week and Dickerson is expected to serve as the Seahawks’ run game coordinator. There are a number of vacant spots left for McVay to fill on his staff, including quarterbacks coach, linebackers coach, cornerbacks coach, and presumably assistant head coach. Whether or not McVay opts to replace Dickerson or find a new passing game coordinator remains to be seen.
The Rams have Aaron Kromer, one of the best offensive line coaches in the NFL, and his son Zak Kromer has been employed by the team for the last four years as an offensive quality control coach.
