If you hadn’t heard by now, LA Rams HC Sean McVay will be returning as the head coach for the Rams for the 2023 NFL season. While that is excellent news for the organization and the fans, there is not a moment to lose now, as the team already has openings in the coaching staff that are critical and need to be addressed. So, it’s time to move forward with the offseason, which starts with the coaching staff.

There will be a few coaching positions up for grabs on the Rams coaching staff this off-season, but I want to focus on the team’s vacated offensive coordinator position. The position has been a big topic recently as the Rams look for someone to fill that role and help McVay and the offense.

Rams rumors are Mike LeFleur is the new OC

It was reported today that former New York Jets offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur is rumored to be hired as the man for the job, per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

LaFleur is considered a good offensive mind and has received high praise from New York Jets head coach Robert Salah about the job he did in New York. However, the Jets finished 7-10 this last season, and even though the offensive numbers for the Jets didn’t look too good, people believe it was because of the Jets’ quarterback play, as it was a quarterback carousel all season.
