Super Bowl LVI is going to feature two young head coaches. Sean McVay will lead his Los Angeles Rams team into SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
Zac Taylor will lead his Cincinnati Bengals troops into enemy territory on Sunday, February 13th. Super Bowl LVI will be on NBC at 6:30 pm EST.
This is the second straight year that the home team will host the Super Bowl. The Rams are 7-3 this season at SoFi Stadium, including the playoffs.
Last season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers became the first team to win the Super Bowl in their home stadium. The Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
The two coaches are familiar with one another. Taylor worked under McVay for two seasons before becoming the Bengals head coach.
He was first the Rams’ assistant wide receivers coach in 2017. The following season, he was the team’s quarterbacks coach.
Both coaches are 36 and 38, respectively. McVay is going to be coaching in his second Super Bowl at 36.
Taylor was on McVay’s coaching staff in 2018 that lost to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII.
McVay is 55-26 as the Rams head coach in the regular season. He is 6-3 in the playoffs.
The Rams are 3-0 in the playoffs this season. They can have a perfect postseason with a win over the Bengals.
Taylor is 16-32-1 as an NFL head coach with the Bengals in the regular season. Like McVay, he is perfect with a 3-0 mark in the playoffs.
For the first time since the 2015 season, the Bengals made the playoffs this season.
