The Los Angeles Rams are expected to hire Kentucky offensive coordinator Liam Coen for the same role, sources told ESPN.
Coen, a Rams assistant from 2018 to 2020, would replace Kevin O’Connell, who left to become Minnesota Vikings head coach. An agreement for Coen has not been finalized, but should be in the near future, according to sources.
Coen, 36, spent 2018 and 2019 as Ram’s assistant wide receiver coach before spending the team’s assistant quarterback coach in 2020. He then joined the Kentucky staff, which went 10-3 and finished the season as No. 18.
The Rhode Island native Coen played quarterback at UMass and spent most of his early coaching career in the Northeast, stopping at Brown, Rhode Island, UMass and Maine.
Sports Illustrated first reported the Rams’ expected lease of Coen.
