Report: Rams could bring in college assistant as new OC
The Los Angeles Rams need a new offensive coordinator, and they could look to the college ranks to fill the position.
Kentucky offensive coordinator Liam Coen is considered a favorite to take over the offensive coordinator role, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Coen served on the Rams’ staff under coach Sean McVay from 2018 to 2020.
Meanwhile, the #Rams are expecting assistant HC Thomas Brown to return to their staff, while assistant QBs coach Zac Robinson will stay in LA with a better title. That leaves the vacant OC spot, with Kentucky’s Liam Coen as a top candidate.

The 36-year-old Coen would certainly be an off-the-radar candidate, but he does come from the McVay coaching tree. That tree has produced multiple head coaches, usually on the offensive side of the ball. In fact, he went straight to Kentucky as offensive coordinator after serving as the Rams’ assistant quarterbacks coach.
No matter who takes over the Rams’ offense, they’ll have a very talented group at their disposal. That group also looks pretty self-motivated, so the job will be very attractive.
