Today, the Los Angeles Rams finally held their press conference introducing the new additions to the coaching staff, including Offensive Coordinator Kevin O’Connell, Defensive Coordinator Brandon Staley, and Special Teams Coordinator John Bonamego.
If you missed it, you can catch the video here:
After getting a chance to watch the presser, I came away with some interesting notes from Head Coach Sean McVay, as well as the newly appointed OC, DC, and ST’s coaches.
McVay on DC Brandon Staley:
- Mentions the success Vic Fangio has had defensively for a while, and that it plays a role in the hopeful future of Staley
- Fangio spoke very highly of Staley
Staley talking about McVay:
- Outside Linebackers Coach Chris Shula one of his good buddies, kept in touch about players/personnel
- Has watched McVay from afar, very familiar with the scheme/players, was impressed with what McVay has been able to do in short time as HC
- Talks about former Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips’ legacy in Denver, talks to guys like EDGE Von Miller about his reputation (his rep is amazing if you didn’t know, shocker)
- Looks at the opportunity as a new beginning.
