Sean McVay shares very interesting comment about coaching future
Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay will lead his team in the Super Bowl on Sunday, but his mind was elsewhere at least briefly on Friday when contemplating his career path.
On Friday, McVay offhandedly remarked that he “won’t make it” if he coaches until he’s 60. Asked to expand on that, McVay admitted he has thought about finding the right work-life balance and how starting a family will factor into that.
“I love this so much that it’s such a passion but I also know that what I’ve seen from some of my closest friends, whether it’s coaches or even some of our players, I’m gonna be married this summer, I want to have a family and I think being able to find that balance but also be able to give the time necessary,” McVay said, via Nick Wagoner of ESPN. “I have always had a dream about being able to be a father and I can’t predict the future, you know? I jokingly say that.
“I don’t really know. I know I love football and I’m so invested in this thing and I’m in the moment right now. But at some point, too, if you said what do you want to be able to do? I want to be able to have a family and I want to be able to spend time with them.”
McVay’s comments come a day after a new report suggested that the Rams coach could be eyed as a potential broadcaster if he wants to give up coaching. While it is unclear if McVay would take that offer, ESPN’s Lindsey Thiry reported that McVay has at least given the concept some thought.
The 36-year-old McVay has been engaged to fiancee Veronika Khomyn since 2019 and has definitely given thought to starting a family. He certainly makes it sound like a break from coaching at some point is on the table, though he doesn’t sound ready to stop right now, either.
