The Los Angeles Rams have a 30-year-old head coach. Now they have a veteran assistant coach, as Sean McVay has just hired Wade Phillips to be his new defensive coordinator, according to ESPN‘s Adam Schefter.
Phillips was reportedly going to interview for the Washington Redskins defensive coordinator job. We do not know if he did prior to this new.
This is a huge get for the Rams as he was considered one of two best defensive coordinators on the market. Gus Bradley is the other and may now become the Redskins defensive coordinator.
