    Posted this in the McVay thread below but figured I'd put it here also. I've read two different articles today, one stating that Gruden has been mentoring McVay recently and giving him advice on how to be a head coach and the other one stated the Rams have been in constant contact with Gruden as an organizational adviser this offseason. So doesn't surprise me if he ends up being our guy now. If Gruden stays on as an adviser through this whole offseason to McVay I'd be a lot more comfortable with the hire.

    Edit: Kind of meshed the Grudens together in the two posts I wrote. Obviously, it's Jay Gruden who is mentoring McVay and Jon Gruden who is advising the Rams.

    One source said Gruden spoke with the Rams, but that the former NFL coach was acting in an advisory capacity, offering an “organizational assessment.”

    of course they had to start somewhere but all of the horrible play callers not only had to also start somewhere but how many work out and how many would be as good as the guy we hired because of his play calling?

    not saying it couldn't happen but most of the time I don't see it and can the rams really afford to take the risk?

    Rams have second meeting with Sean McVay
    Posted by Darin Gantt on January 11, 2017

    The Rams are apparently serious about Sean McVay.

    According to Tom Pelissero of USA Today, the Rams have conducted a second interview with the Washington offensive coordinator, indicating things are beginning to move a bit more quickly for them.

    McVay earned plenty of praise for his work with quarterback Kirk Cousins, and considering any coach the Rams hire is going to be tasked with turning Jared Goff into the kind of passer you trade a basket full of picks for, that’s clearly a point of emphasis for them.

    The 30-year-old McVay has also interviewed with the 49ers.

    I'd feel a lot better about McVay if Jon Gruden committed to an advisory role in the organization and Wade Phillips was brought on as DC.

    Both those men can help the youngster excel.

    Report: Sean McVay’s top choice for DC is Wade Phillips
    Posted by Darin Gantt on January 11, 2017

    [​IMG]Getty Images

    If you’re going to hire the youngest head coach in NFL history, you better back him up with some experience.

    That may be happening in Los Angeles.

    According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Rams candidate Sean McVay wants to bring Wade Phillips in as his defensive coordinator if he gets the head coaching job.

    The 30-year-old McVay is the offensive whiz kid of the moment, but the 69-year-old Phillips with the talent assembled with the Rams is intriguing. They’re built on a 4-3 platform, but Phillips is one of the top defensive minds in the game.

    Phillips has been mentioned with some other jobs, including Washington.
