Random Ramsdom: It’s time for the annual head coach photo

Los Angeles Rams News and Links for 3/29/22

Greg Auman of The Athletic posted the annual NFL coaches photo and front and center is yours truly, the fifth year, three time division, two time conference, and Super Bowl 56 Champion head coach of the Los Angeles Rams Sean McVay.

Not only is it always an interesting visual when the fraternity of head men who are normally positioned in front of a group end up shoulder to shoulder in a group. It is particularly interesting for McVay fans who have followed his coaching career and the subsequent careers of the coaches that worked for him.

Before the McVay tree, came the Jon Gruden and Mike Shanahan tree from which McVay’s assistant coaching career happened. In this photo, Kyle Shanahan, Matt Lafleur, and McVay all worked as assistants together for Washington before becoming head coaches on their own. Robert Saleh and new head coach Mike McDaniel worked under Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco.

LaFleur worked on McVay’s staff in 2017 for the Los Angeles Rams. Zac Taylor worked for McVay in 2017-2018, and Brandon Staley was the Rams defensive coordinator under McVay in 2020.
