The LA Rams certainly are doing more than putting on a fresh new coat of paint for the upcoming 2021 NFL season. It’s a new attitude, a renewed sense of urgency, and what appears to be in many ways a refurbished, if not new, coaching staff. Of course, hiring new coaches takes time, and the Rams will be very deliberate with their new additions.
We know that the Rams have added Raheem Morris as their new defensive coordinator, a coach with strong ties to McVay and who worked with him on two different teams. The Rams also hired new ST coordinator Joe DeCamillis. DeCamillis takes over for John Bonamego, who has been reassigned on the team as a senior coaching assistant. So what is the link between McVay and DeCamillis? Like McVay, Joe DeCamillis was in the NFL as a coach at age 31,
Now the LA Rams are hiring another young promising coach to the staff. This time it is Stanford’s run game coordinator/ offensive line coach Kevin Carberry.
McVay is tapping coaches who he has worked with before and is familiar with in this hire. Actually, he is quite familiar with both HC Sean McVay and OC Kevin O’Connell. In 2016, he was the assistant offensive line coach when McVay was the offensive coordinator.
He remained in that role the following year when O’Connell became Washington’s offensive coordinator. He joined Stanford’s coaching staff in 2018 as their Run Game Coordinator/Offensive Line coach.
