Shane Waldron, Rams Passing Game Coordinator
The Sean McVay coaching tree has become a hot commodity for NFL franchises. After just three years as an NFL head coach, two former McVay assistants in Zac Taylor and former Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur have already gone on to become head coaches themselves. Possibly the next McVay assistant following that path is Rams passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach, Shane Waldron.
Before taking over as a head coach, however, Waldron may look for a smaller promotion from passing game coordinator to offensive coordinator. If this is the case, the Titans would be wise to see how interested Waldron might be in coming to Nashville.
Since Waldron’s promotion in 2018, the Rams’ passing offense has been among the league’s most effective. Los Angeles finished with a top-five pass offense last season, and are on pace to finish in the top five once again this year.
While taking a slight step back in yards per game in 2019 compared to 2018, the group has still shown improvement from where they were before Waldron took over when they ranked 10th in passing yards per game.
Waldron followed McVay to Los Angeles from the Washington Redskins coaching staff. While McVay was the offensive coordinator, Waldron was in charge of offensive quality control and contributed to a team that ended up ranked third in the NFL in total offense.
From Washington to Los Angeles, Waldron has had success at his most recent coaching stops and has helped produce one of the NFL’s most prolific passing attacks. Waldron has also been able to develop and learn under one of the league’s best coaches in Sean McVay for years.
Shane Waldron could be poised for success when he takes the next step in his career, and Tennessee might be his next stop.
