If there hadn’t been enough Rams coaches leaving the team for one reason or another this offseason, we can go ahead and add one more to the list.
According to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic, offensive line coach/run game coordinator Aaron Kromer and the team have decided to “mutually part ways”, per a team spokesperson.
Kromer has coached the offensive line since Sean McVay was hired back in 2017 and he’s been the run game coordinator since 2018. As of now, Kromer’s son Zak will stay on with the Rams in his role as an offensive quality control coach.

A source said that Kromer's move is not for a new coaching opportunity. Son Zak will stay on in his current OQC role, per source.
Of the 18 coaches that were part of the staff when the Rams made the Super Bowl during the 2018 season, only five of them remain as of now. The McVay coaching tree seems to be growing at an exponential rate, although that’s not necessarily a good thing for a team that’s always in “compete now”-mode.
