Josh McDaniels' preferred offensive coordinator, Kevin O'Connell, takes a different job

On Friday night, the Los Angeles Rams made the move to hire Kevin O'Connell as their next offensive coordinator. O'Connell spent the 2019 season as the Washington Redskins offensive coordinator and will now work under Sean McVay.

O'Connell, 38, was a former New England Patriots third-round draft pick in 2008 but spent just one season as a backup quarterback with the team before bouncing around the NFL.

And while O'Connell was only with the Patriot short-term, his hire on Friday actually may actually be of some significance for the team.
