On top of those six departures, Liam Coen left his post as offensive coordinator to take the same job he had the year prior at the University of Kentucky.

Instead of leaving a Rams franchise that is heading toward a rebuild, like many presumed, McVay seems inclined to get Los Angeles back to the Super Bowl. In doing so, McVay has let go of a handful of staff members that were a part of a championship-winning team just a year ago.
