Two days after announcing that Aaron Kromer was leaving his position as offensive line coach, the Los Angeles Rams reportedly have a replacement: Stanford run game coordinator/offensive line coach Kevin Carberry.

Carberry has spent the last three seasons coaching offensive line and coordinating the run game for head coach David Shaw at Stanford. Among the players he coached at Stanford is tackle Walker Little, a day two prospect who could be a fit for LA’s needs along the offensive line.

Prior to Stanford, Carberry was an offensive assistant with the Dallas Cowboys in 2014-2015, then an assistant offensive line coach for Washington from 2016-2017, which is where you get the necessary Sean McVay connection.

From Carberry’s Stanford bio:

While with the Redskins, Carberry and offensive line coach Bill Callahan presided over one of the league’s top units, producing two Pro Bowlers (tackle Trent Williams and guard Brandon Scherff) for the Redskins for the first time since 1991. The unit helped power the Redskins to the third-ranked offense in the NFL, allowing the team to average more than 400 yards per game for the first time in team history, while allowing only 23 sacks — fourth in the NFL. The tutelage and guidance of Carberry and Callahan were paramount in helping the Redskins offense overcome a season-long rash of injuries and still average nearly 325 yards/game in 2017. The Redskins used 36 unique groups of offensive linemen (including seven different combinations of six-lineman groupings), as well as eight different starting lineups along the offensive line. Members of the unit were once again honored for their excellence, as Scherff earned his second Pro Bowl selection and Williams earned his sixth consecutive Pro Bowl nod despite battling a year-long knee injury. Together, Scherff and Williams became the first Redskins offensive line duo collectively named to the Pro Bowl in consecutive seasons since the 1983-86 seasons.

Carberry was key in the development of sixth-round draft pick Chase Roullier in Washington. As a rookie, Roullier played in 13 games while making seven starts.
