The Los Angeles Rams coaching staff has undergone a complete makeover this offseason after the firing of head coach Jeff Fisher.

The only one from Fisher’s staff that currently remains with the team is the man who took over for him as the interim head coach, John Fassel, as he reportedly will retain his job as special teams coordinator.

Taking over as the head coach is former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay, as the soon-to-be 31-year-old becomes the youngest head coach in NFL history.

He has sought out some experience to help him in his first head coaching gig though, as the Rams have reached an agreement with Wade Phillips, who has coached in the NFL for 40 years, to be their defensive coordinator.

While they have yet to hire an offensive coordinator, that may not be too high on their to-do list as McVay has already said that he will be the one calling the plays for the offense.

One possible offensive coordinator that can be crossed off the list is the team’s offensive coordinator from last season, Rob Boras, as he was recently hired by the Buffalo Bills to be their tight ends coach.

Boras returns to the job he has the most NFL experience in, as he served as the tight ends coach of the Chicago Bears from 2004-09, Jacksonville Jaguars from 2010-11 and then the Rams from 2012-15 before being promoted to offensive coordinator late in the 2015 season.

The Rams offense ranked dead last in both points and yards in the NFL in 2016, so it comes as no surprise that they elected to move on from Boras.

He becomes the second former Rams coordinator to find a job elsewhere, as defensive coordinator Gregg Williams now holds that same position with the Cleveland Browns.

Boras joins former Rams defensive line coach Mike Waufle with the Bills, as he was also recently hired to their coaching staff under new head coach Sean McDermott.
