Sean McVay Finally Admits Truth About Ridiculous Retirement Rumors
Sean McVay cemented himself as one of the league's best coaches back in February when he won Super Bowl LVI with the Los Angeles Rams. However, even though he's the youngest NFL head coach to ever win the Vince Lombardi Trophy (36 years, 20 days), rumors circulated earlier this offseason about a potential early retirement from coaching to join broadcasting.
Fortunately, Rams fans can let out a collective sigh of relief. McVay appeared on The Rich Eisen Show last week and commented on the ridiculous retirement rumors, clarifying that he's "nowhere close to not wanting to coach football."

McVay added that a career in the broadcast booth is something he's interested in down the line, but that he "couldn't be happier coaching ball" for the time being. He knows that won't last forever, though.
"I love coaching so much. The question was asked if I was going to be a lifer in coaching, and then I elaborated on I don’t know if I see myself doing this until I’m 70."- Sean McVay
After nearly a decade as an assistant coach for multiple teams, McVay became the Rams' head coach in 2017. The organization has been among the league's best during that duration, with their 55 wins trailing only the Kansas City Chiefs (60) and New Orleans Saints (58).
Even though lucrative broadcasting contracts can be tempting, McVay has a chance at doing something that few coaches have done and that's winning back-to-back Super Bowls. The Rams' offense and defense are expected to be elite again and another deep playoff run is to be expected.
FanDuel Sportsbook is giving the Rams +1100 odds (No. 4) to win Super Bow LVII, making back-to-back title wins a distinct possibility.
