Washington OC Sean McVay will interview with the 49ers on Monday

Jan 3, 2017 at 2:21 PM--


Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay will interview with the San Francisco 49ers on Monday in New York for their vacant head coaching job. The team had already planned to be in New York that week to interview ESPN analyst Louis Riddick for the general manager job.


McVay has been the offensive coordinator with Washington since 2014. Before that, he served as the tight ends coach and assistant tight ends coach with the team. McVay began his NFL coaching career in 2008 as an offensive assistant with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

McVay will also meet with the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday, who are also searching for a new head coach. He has guided a Washington offense that was ranked third in total offense and second in passing in 2016. At age 30, McVay is the youngest coordinator in the league, per Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.

McVay's grandfather, John McVay, coached the New York Giants from 1976 until 1978 and served in various roles, including general manager, with the 49ers in the 1980s and 1990s.


"He's done a great job and deserves an opportunity to interview and see what happens," Washington head coach Jay Gruden said on Monday when asked about McVay's impending interview with the Rams. "But he's brought a lot to this football team as far as offensively and done a good job calling plays and utilizing the people that we have. Unfortunately, we didn't get it done yesterday, but that should not affect his ability to get an interview or a job."

'What's with their coach?': 49ers' Jimmie Ward feels disrespected by Rams' Sean McVay

Does Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay think less of safety Jimmie Ward than he should? The San Francisco 49ers defender appears to believe so. In a conversation with Grant Cohn of Sports Illustrated, the soon-to-be 30-year-old safety feels like McVay unfairly targets him, thinking he can take advantage of the veteran defensive back. The safety and beat writer remembered a matchup in 2019 when McVay tested Ward's coverage skills with several offensive players, likely thinking he could take advantage of the defender. "What's with their coach? Does he have the big head or something like (that)?" Ward told Cohn during

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.
