Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay received a lot of interest from television networks after the Rams’ Super Bowl victory last season. Despite a slump on the field in Los Angeles this year, there still seems to be some interest in McVay taking on the role of Game His Analyst or Studio His Analyst from his TV Partners.
McVay spoke about the interest around him on Friday, saying it was “complimentary” but said his focus was still on improving the Rams.
“Sean McVay said it was ‘honored’ to get the interest from the television network, and that he hasn’t shied away from the fact that it’s something I’ve been interested in all along.” I want to be here now and focus on that. ESPN Rams reporter Sarah Barshop tweeted.
Sean McVay said it was “flattering” to get the attention from television networks, and “doesn’t run away from the fact that in the future, or at any time, that’s what I was interested in.” .
“But I want to be here now. Focus on it. That’s where I am.”

The Rams have dealt with numerous injuries to Matthew Stafford, Cooper Cup, Aaron Donald and many other key players that ultimately derailed their season.
McVay must believe this Rams team is one that could compete in the NFC if healthy. It’s also possible that McVay thinks broadcasting gigs are still on the table after he decides to quit coaching, but his coaching career may be limited.
Regardless, McVay doesn’t seem to have plans to go anywhere anytime soon, with future broadcast roles firmly on the backburner.
