Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said Monday he doesn’t think he is done coaching but will take some time to decide whether he’ll return to the team for the 2023 season.
“(I will) take the next couple of days to really be able to reflect and (have) a lot of conversations that will dictate and determine the decision that’s best for me and my family,” McVay said Monday, according to Greg Beacham of The Associated Press.
The 36-year-old added that he’s going to “take the appropriate time” to make a decision about his future, but also said, “I don’t get the sense in the least bit that I’m done coaching,” according to Sarah Barshop of ESPN.
McVay is coming off his worst campaign with the Rams, who finished the 2022 season with a 5-12 record. Injuries to the likes of Matthew Stafford, Aaron Donald, and Cooper Kupp bothered Los Angeles all year, keeping the team away from playoff contention just months after winning Super Bowl LVI.
Speculation about McVay’s future began last February. When asked about his coaching future following Los Angeles’ championship win, he responded, “We’ll see.” McVay ultimately not only returned for another year with the Rams but also signed an extension through the 2026 campaign.
“This has been years. This is not a new thing,” McVay said Monday when asked about the possibility of stepping away, according to Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times.
McVay is 60-38 since joining the Rams in 2017. He became the youngest head coach in NFL history to win the Super Bowl with a 23-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals last year. He also led Los Angeles to Super Bowl LIII but fell short against the New England Patriots.
