Sean McVay has downplayed rumours that he is eyeing a move from the sidelines to the television booth and says he'll return to coach the Los Angeles Rams in 2022.
McVay takes the 1/2 Rams to their second Super Bowl under his watch on Sunday night when they look to get the better of the 17/10 Cincinnati Bengals at SoFi Stadium.
The 36-year-old was named NFL Coach of the Year in 2017 after he took the Rams to the play-offs in his first season in charge before going even further a year later when, as the youngest coach to reach the Super Bowl, his team were beaten 13-3 by the New England Patriots.
There has been speculation that McVay, who is getting married later this year, might want to spend more time with his family in the near future.
Sources told ESPN reporters Lindsey Thiry and Jeremy Fowler that the Rams coach could be interested in moving to television, like ex-Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden did for a while.
And, although McVay admitted during the team's final media availability ahead of Super Bowl LVI on Friday that his desire to have a family weighs heavily on him, he later said he would be back coaching for the Rams next season.
"I love this so much that it's such a passion, but I also know that what I've seen from some of my closest friends, whether it's coaches or even some of our players...I'm gonna be married this summer, I want to have a family and I think being able to find that balance but also be able to give the time necessary," he said, via ESPN.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport later reported that McVay told him that he'll back on the sideline in Inglewood next season.
"What he texted me was, 'I am committed to this team, and coaching,'' Rapoport stated. "Sean McVay will be back for the 2022 season and beyond."
