The Los Angeles Rams are getting ready to perhaps make a flurry of moves this offseason but they just made a big one in their organization. After hiring a new offensive coordinator, special teams coordinator and defensive coordinator, the Rams have shuffled around faces. They won’t be doing that this time with their personnel, in fact, they will be promoting Sophie Luoto to Director of Football Operations according to Charles Robinson.
I'm hearing the #Rams are going to be promoting football administration staffer Sophie Luoto to Director of Football Operations, making her one of the #NFL's highest-ranking female executives in the #NFL. She's been very well-respected amongst the Rams staff and players.

This move comes after Luoto spent nearly four years with the organization in operations. Now, she will take over as the Director of Football Operations meaning she will be one of the league’s highest-ranking female executives. It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, as Robinson mentions, Luoto is very well-respected by the staff and the players. Luoto fills the vacant role as recently-vacated by Bruce Warwick who had left the team at the end of the season to become the Chief of Staff for the Florida State Seminoles.
Luoto was praised by head coach Sean McVay and given a game ball back in 2018 after orchestrating a plan to get the Rams and their players ready to play their home game following the California forest fires.
