>>>> Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay: “A players’ coach is going to be open to communication and transparency”
Since he became the youngest head coach in the history of the NFL, Sean McVay has been one of the most relevant people in American sports, leading the Rams from the bottom part of the league to one of the most prominent places. In the following quotes, we learn McVay’s recipe for success.


Three years ago, at the age of 30 you became the youngest head coach in the history of the NFL. What does youth brings to the head-coaching job?

Above all things it reminds you that there is a lot of room to learn, a huge space to grow.

Since you joined the Rams you turned the club around, guiding it to play in the Super Bowl. How did you do it?

It is very important to create a culture where you have core values and beliefs that you think are consistent with the things you want to represent.

The relationship you develop with your players is admired throughout sports. What is the secret for it?

A players’ coach is going to be open to communication and transparency. I think you have to try to be yourself. When you are genuine and authentic, things work out with the players”.

You believe in delegating, giving the assistant coaches freedom in those areas of the game that you do not run directly. Do you agree with this?

Yes, I do. I have great assistant coaches. Our team can operate under their leadership, so I can focus on the offense as a play caller.

In your second season as the Rams head coach you took the team to the Super Bowl, but things did not go well in the NFL’s championship game. What happened?

Well, simply I got outcoached. I was not at the level of my football team. I think I did not do my part to help them win the game. For example, I was not good with the play selection.


Sean McVay was born in Dayton, Ohio, on January 24th of 1986. Besides having a good high school tenure as a quarterback, he decided to play wide receiver at the University of Miami, Ohio, where his father and grandfather did the same. Very young he started his coaching career as an assistant with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when he was only 22. Two years later McVay was hired by the Washington Redskins where he became offensive coordinator in 2014. In January of 2017, the Los Angeles Rams appointed him to lead the club. This way, at the age of 30 he became the youngest head coach in the history of the NFL. In his first season, he led Los Angeles to the playoffs and in the second one he took his team to the Super Bowl, where the Rams lost to the New England Patriots.
