In unusual news, the LA Rams are hiring NFL writer Andy Benoit, who has previously written for Sports Illustrated, CBS, and the New York Times, in a role with the team this upcoming season. Benoit will serve as an assistant to head coach Sean McVay with an emphasis on “Special Projects” as a researcher for the team, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Benoit, whose Twitter account is private, has also written about advanced statistics for the website Football Outsiders. This move could point towards more of an emphasis on analytics for the Rams as move forward into the 2021 season.
