Washington’s Sean McVay had second interview with Rams

Jan 11, 2017 at 9:11 AM--


The Los Angeles Rams appear to be very interested in Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay. Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY is reporting that McVay had a second interview with the Rams following his interview with the team last week. Mike Garafolo of NFL Network states that the San Francisco 49ers remain in the mix, but that things are "heating up."



Sean McVay, who is the grandson of former New York Giants coach and 49ers general manager John McVay, interviewed with San Francisco on Monday.

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. He 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 and a promotion would make him the youngest head coach. He will turn 31 later this month.

Other 49ers coaching candidates appear to be on the move as well. Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott looks to be close to landing with the Buffalo Bills. McDermott interviewed with the 49ers on Tuesday. Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph is tentatively scheduled to meet with the 49ers on Thursday, but that interview will not happen if he is signed by the Denver Broncos to replace Gary Kubiak. Joseph interviewed with Denver on Tuesday. He and Seattle Seahawks assistant head coach and offensive line coach Tom Cable remain the only known head coach candidates that the 49ers have not yet met with.

Late Tuesday night, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area broke the news that the 49ers had added another name to their list of general manager candidates. The team plans to meet with Arizona Cardinals vice president of player personnel Terry McDonough on Friday.

San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel had no idea that Trey Lance of North Dakota State would be the pick at No. 3. None of the 49ers coaches did. That's how secretive head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch were being with the selection. Lance didn't even know until minutes before hearing his name called by Commissioner Roger Goodell. That's what he told NFL Network's Melissa Stark onstage. The 49ers traded for the No. 3 overall pick on March 26, giving up, along with a future third-round pick, first-rounders in the next two drafts. Since then, there has been much speculation surrounding what the team planned to do. Finally, the wait for Niner fans is over, and Lance is the organization's quarterback of the
