The Rams have taken another hit in the coaching department. The first came with the Loss of Quarterback Coach, Greg Olson, to the Oakland Raiders. Today, it was announced that Offensive Coordinator, Matt LaFluer, has taken a job with the Tennessee Titans.
Olson was replaced by former Wide Receiver Coach, Zac Taylor. They followed the news of the LaFluer departure with news that Aaron Kromer, Offensive Line Coach, and Shane Waldron, Tight End Coach, will split offensive responsibilities. Kromer was named Run Game Coordinator and Waldron was named Pass Game Coordinator. Jedd Fisch, Former UCLA Offensive Coordinator, was also added to the offensive coaching staff as a Senior Offensive Assistant with the departure of Olson. Fisch’s role will primarily be in gameday management and situational instances.
Head Coach, Sean McVay will continue to call plays in his second year and says he is confident in Kromer and Waldron in their new roles on offense. McVay could have blocked the move but decided to let LaFleur, 38, progress his career.
