Rams Lose Coordinator Matt LaFleur to the Titans as New OC

Another member of the Rams’ 2017 offensive coaching staff has departed for a new opportunity, as the Titans named Matt LaFleur their new offensive coordinator, Myles Simmons of the Rams official website reports.

With the move, head coach Sean McVay has promoted offensive line coach Aaron Kromer to run game coordinator and tight ends coach Shane Waldron to pass game coordinator.

“I’m excited for Matt LaFleur and his family as he transitions to the Titans as offensive coordinator,” McVay said in a statement. “We’re grateful for his contribution to the Rams and our NFC West Championship season last year. As we move to 2018, we are confident in the leadership and guidance of Aaron Kromer and Shane Waldron as they begin their roles as run coordinator and pass coordinator.”

While LaFleur was an important piece of the Rams’ game planning and installation, he did not call plays in his first year as a coordinator under McVay. With former Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel newly hired as the Titans’ head coach, LaFleur will presumably call plays in Tennessee, which amounts to a promotion for the 38 year old.
