Ever since the Los Angeles Rams won Super Bowl LVI there have been several fascinating stories floating around the NFL. A new story centering head coach Sean McVay just hit the stands.

Earlier there were rumors that the 36-year old head coach is leaving the Rams behind. While that turned out to be false, another rumor spread that McVay decided to end his career to be an NFL TV game analyst. This too turned out to be a strong NO from the Super Bowl winning coach.

Amazon Prime Video was planning on meeting next week with Sean McVay about him becoming an NFL TV game analyst, and sources reported that Amazon was offering him $100 million for a five year contract for its exclusive Thursday Night Football package in the fall. As per reports, McVay has squashed every rumor about him leaving the Rams.

McVay currently makes $8.5 million per season as the head coach for the Rams which will be definitely be raised by a huge amount since he has turned away such a lucrative deal. On Friday night, ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted that he was told by McVay that he “is not pursuing any television opportunities, and he is committed to helping the Rams defend their Super Bowl title.” McVay was approached by Amazon and Fox for their TV analyst position, however, the World Champ coach would rather lead his team to win a consecutive Super Bowl win.
