The Los Angeles Rams announced that they’ve officially hired Falcons QBs coach Matt LaFleur as their new offensive coordinator.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media mentions that the Rams are likely to hire Falcons QBs coach Matt LaFleur as their next offensive coordinator.
- Adam Schefter confirms that LaFleur is expected to be hired by the Rams as their offensive coordinator.
Schefter previously reported that the Rams were requesting permission to interview LaFleur for their offensive coordinator vacancy after Super Bowl LI.
LaFleur previously worked with new Rams HC Sean McVay while they were both working on the Redskins’ coaching staff.
According to Schefter, LaFleur is interested in the position and McVay reportedly views him as a great option to help him implement his offense and work with former No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff.
LaFleur, 36, began his NFL coaching career with the Texans as their offensive quality control coach back in 2008. He later took over as the Redskins’ QBs coach in 2010 and spent four years with Washington.
After one year at Notre Dame, LaFleur returned to the NFL when the Falcons hired him as their QBs coach in 2015.
