Rams make underrated move hiring Zac Robinson as new assistant
The Los Angeles Rams announced on Saturday that Zac Robinson will be coming on board as the new assistant quarterbacks coach.
Ever since Zac Taylor left to become the new head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals, there have been plenty of questions surrounding the Los Angeles Rams when it comes to filling the void left by their former quarterbacks coach.
Turns out, Sean McVay and the Rams have officially made a new hiring in Zac Robinson, who could turn out to be a huge steal from a hiring perspective.
Unfortunately for Los Angeles, the NFC champions were at a bit of a disadvantage when Taylor left for Cincinnati since it took place after the Super Bowl, and most of the coaching candidates were already on their new teams.
However, when taking a look at Robinson’s resume, fans should be excited about the potential with McVay’s new assistant since the development of Jared Goff is going to continue being important once again heading into the 2019 season.
From a professional playing standpoint, Robinson was one of those players back in the day who bounced around to a few teams trying to make a name for himself after the New England Patriots drafted him in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft, only to come up short each time.
However, just because Robinson failed to make it as a player doesn’t necessarily mean this should be viewed as a terrible hiring by Los Angeles since his skills as an analyst and quarterback trainer alone gives this move a ton of potential.
Keep in mind that one of the main reasons behind the excitement in hiring McVay two years ago was due to his history of developing quarterbacks after proving to be successful with Kirk Cousins when he was on the Washington Redskins.
Combine the intelligence of McVay and Robinson with the fact that Goff continues to improve with experience as displayed over the last two seasons, the Rams’ offense should be in amazing shape once again for the 2019 season.
Los Angeles fans can say whatever they want about their concerns surrounding Goff after his poor play in Super Bowl 53 when it mattered the most, but at the end of the day, he’s still young, and should benefit the most from this recent hiring of Robinson to the coaching staff.
