NBC Sports’ Peter King did an early morning interview with head coach Sean McVay as he drove to the Rams practice facility in Los Angeles. The 33-year-old revealed that he’s texting buddies with his Super Bowl counterpart.
Put Bill Belichick down as a fan of McVay’s. According to the coaching phenom, Belichick sent him a text after every one of the Rams games this season.
Via Pro Football Talk:
“I’ve gotten to know Bill [Belichick]—we talked at the combine last year—so that’s been cool.
“He was really great in the conversation we had, really enlightening. This is wild: This season, he has basically texted me after every one of our games. After we beat Minnesota in September, he texted, ‘Man, you guys are really explosive and impressive and fun to watch. Congratulations—keep it rolling.’ For him to even take the time to say congrats, it’s pretty cool. That’s one of the things I like about our business, our fraternity of coaches. As competitive as it is, guys find time to share when they can. I’m still young, still figuring it out. That stuff’s been really helpful to me.”
I wonder if Belichick will send him one after the Super Bowl? That’s the message we would like to read.
