ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay has decided to return to the team for the 2022 season. There were heavily circulated rumors that McVay could retire after the Rams won Super Bowl LVI and immediately enter broadcasting. McVay made the right decision returning to the Rams.
The Rams have a unique opportunity to run it back after winning their first Super Bowl in Los Angeles. Most of the roster could return intact with some creative financial maneuvering, and McVay will still have his quarterback in Matthew Stafford. Stafford and his coach clearly formed a strong bond this season as they led the Rams to a title.
McVay's return could push Aaron Donald to hold off on retirement and return to the fold. Rather than a breakup of the team after a title, LA could wind up getting the band back together for another run.
McVay is only 36, broadcasting will always be there for him when he's ready. Right now he's coaching a Super Bowl-winning team capable of taking home another title. Those opportunities don't come around often.
I think McVay would make a great broadcaster eventually. But he's got plenty of time to explore that arena in the future.
