Amidst all the speculation regarding Sean McVay’s possible departure from the Los Angeles Rams this offseason, it’s been announced offensive coordinator Liam Coen will be leaving Southern California.
The University of Kentucky broke the news that Coen has been hired as the team’s offensive coordinator and QBs coach for the Wildcats. Coen inked a three-year, $5.4 million deal.

The 37-year-old has bounced back and forth between Kentucky and Los Angeles in recent years. Here’s a look at his coaching timeline:
- 2018-2019: Rams assistant WRs coach
- 2020: Rams assistant QBs coach
- 2021: Kentucky offensive coordinator and QBs coach
- 2022: Rams offensive coordinator
With Los Angeles this season, Coen led the Rams to the sixth-lowest scoring offense in the NFL. But not all the blame falls on Coen’s shoulders.
The Rams were without Matthew Stafford for most of the season. Los Angeles trotted out John Wolford and Bryce Perkins to replace Stafford, before Baker Mayfield finished out the last five games of the year.
Cooper Kupp also missed significant time, and Los Angeles struggled to find consistency at RB.
