The Kentucky Wildcats announced Tuesday that Los Angeles Rams offensive coordinator Liam Coen has accepted the same position at the university and has also been named quarterbacks coach.
That leaves Rams head coach Sean McVay in need of someone to coordinate his offense. But there’s no certainty that McVay will return next season to lead the Rams.
ESPN reports that McVay is allowing his entire coaching staff to look for other jobs because he doesn’t want the uncertainty about his future to hurt them.

As of now, it is unknown if any trainers will take up McVay’s offer to seek employment elsewhere.
McVay captured a Super Bowl victory last year, stars Aaron Donald and Matthew Stafford helped defeat the Cincinnati Bengals at SoFi Stadium in February.
RAMS HEAD COACH SEAN MCVAY WEIGHING IMMEDIATE FUTURE WITH TEAM: REPORT
The Rams couldn’t get over their injuries and inconsistent play this season and went 5-12. Stafford, Donald, Cooper Kupp and others were sidelined for much of the season, and despite his leadership and shrewd thinking, McVay couldn’t salvage the year.
This isn’t the first time McVay’s future as head coach has been in question. He reportedly thought about retiring last offseason after winning it all.
If he did it this time, McVay would finish his career 60-38 in six seasons as the Rams’ head coach.
McVay began his coaching career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an assistant wide receivers coach in 2008 under Jon Gruden. Then, after developing a relationship with Gruden’s brother Jay during his time with the UFL’s Florida Tuskers, McVay moved to the Washington Redskins in 2010 to serve as an assistant tight ends coach under Mike Shanahan.

Jay Gruden was then named the new head coach at Washington in 2014, promoting McVay to offensive coordinator of tight ends coach, a role McVay held from 2011-13.
McVay was considered one of the brilliant offensive minds in the game, and the Rams took a chance on him as head coach in 2017 as he was about to turn 31. The decision turned out to be a good one.
