Sean McVay returns as head coach of the Los Angeles Rams
Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said earlier this month that he wants to take some time to think about his coaching future.
On Friday, the Rams announced on Twitter that McVay “informed the team that he is excited to return next season.”
The Super Bowl-winning head coach compiled a 60-38 regular season record, along with a 7-3 playoff record that included a Super Bowl 56 title.
At 36 years and 20 days old, he became the youngest coach in NFL history to win a Super Bowl. He is also the second-fastest coach in franchise history to 50 wins.
But the Rams’ title defense didn’t go well this year as the team finished the regular season 5-12 record. The Rams were decimated by injuries and a lack of depth, which prevented them from being competitive. The issues led to McVay hitting below .500 in his first year as head coach.

By most accounts, frequent injuries and losses took their toll on McVay. He decided to take some time off after the regular season and evaluate his coaching future with those around him, including his wife and parents.
“I feel very fortunate to have a great group of people in this inner circle to help me weigh in and weigh the different dynamics that will help me make the best decision for me and our family,” she said. McVay said in January.
McVay and general manager Les Snead were given contract extensions on Sept. 8 through 2026.

The Rams originally hired McVay on January 12, 2017. He became the youngest coach in modern NFL history when he was hired at age 30.
McVay’s return to the field is a key step for the Rams to return to the playoffs next year.
