Report: ESPN Pursued Sean McVay For “Monday Night Football” Role

Throughout his brief coaching career, Sean McVay turned many heads for his offensive genius that led to a Super Bowl appearance in his second season. Now entering his fourth season as head coach of the Los Angeles Rams, reports have surfaced McVay has explored a new role in media.


According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, McVay and ESPN held conversations about a potential role for McVay as an analyst on Monday Night Football. ESPN has bet big on former coaches and players to be analysts — such as Tony Romo and Jon Gruden.

According to the same report, ESPN executives believe McVay can become the next Jon Gruden in the booth.

“ESPN executives think McVay could be a standout in the booth, somewhat like Jon Gruden. McVay is just 34, has already been to a Super Bowl and is under contract, but a conversation was had.”

ESPN looks to be laying the foundation in an attempt to sign McVay later on. But, as of now McVay is said to have no interest in leaving his position with the Rams, and remains focused on the upcoming season.

In 3 seasons as head coach of the Rams, McVay has a record of 33-15 and one Super Bowl appearance during the 2018-19 season.
