The LA Rams are once again the hottest coaching incubator for the NFL, and the results of that prestigious reputation have once again resulted with an unthinkable number of coaching losses. At this point in time, the Rams have lost 10 coaches outright. But, due to the promotion of former LB Coach Chris Shula, the Rams have and will be tasked with refilling 11 vacancies.

For a team that began the season with a record of 3-6, and had amassed a record of 8-18 over the previous games leading up to their Week 10 BYE, this is becoming quite difficult to wrap my head around. If you compare the losses to the other 2024 NFL Playoff teams, the Rams were surely hit the hardest by the lure of other NFL teams dangling promotions to coaches.

Of course, the loss of DC Raheem Morris triggered the defection of six other staff members to join Morris as he sets up his new coaching staff with the Atlanta Falcons. But even with looking past those seven coaches, the Rams have now lost three additional coaches to other football programs.

The latest loss is now rumored to be pass game specialist Jake Peetz, who will reportedly join the Seattle Seahawks as their new pass game coordinator.

Jake Peetz has enjoyed a robust coaching career of 13 years, and has held numerous coaching titles along the way. He has worked in five different NFL organizations, the Jacksonville Jaguars (5 years), Washington Commanders (Redskins) (1 year), Oakland Raiders (3 years), Carolina Panthers (2 years), and the most recent two years with the LA Rams. At the collegiate level, he worked for football programs as UCLA (2 years), Alabama (twice for 1 year apiece), and LSU (1 year) as well.

If you want to get a 'feel' for Jake Peetz, I heartily recommend checking out this video link from the Carolina Panthers analyzing QB Teddy Bridgewater's performance. Peetz played an integral part in the Rams' offensive strategy, planning, and execution. And it's that attention to detail and his matter-of-fact delivery that has aided the solid execution on the football field.

Peetz is the latest coaching loss, but this is an ideal time to review the entire coaching losses, and try to mix and match rumored interviews and hires with vacated roles.
