Doug Gottlieb: Is Sean McVay TV Flirtation Influenced By Jon Gruden?

Speculation continues to swirl regarding the future of Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay. The question is whether McVay will return for the 2023 season or if he’ll leave coaching to take an opportunity on TV as an analyst.

On FOX Sports Radio, host Doug Gottlieb wondered if McVay would follow in the same footsteps as his mentor, former Raiders head coach and ESPN analyst Jon Gruden. Gottlieb said the money networks have dished out to other marquee analysts would be too lucrative for McVay to turn down and go back to the sidelines, despite getting a new contract after winning the Super Bowl. McVay has also recently said he intends to remain the head coach of the Rams for the time being.

“I thought last year it felt like it was about a contract,” Gottlieb said. “And the reason you can use TV as a leverage play is because Tony Romo got $17 million a year, and I think Troy Aikman got 18. So now when you’re talking about big boy money whereas previously I think Phil Simms made like three previous to that, and Troy Aikman was in the five variety which is a lot of money for anybody.”

“But for a coach, a lot of them make in the 10 million dollar variety, a coach can all of a sudden say I can leave this job. I don’t have to do training camp and OTAs and all that other stuff and make twice what I’m making, or three times or four times or five times what I’m making. And so he got a new contract. But for it to continue to persist, and then his answers, it feel like he’s gone. It feels like he would take what the Amazon job?”

Dan Byer felt like McVay just has too big a shot on the table to turn down.

“I think that the reasons that he wants to leave now are probably the same reasons he also wanted to step away 10 months ago,” he said. “But maybe the offer was too good to pass up. Or that opportunity or the timing just wasn’t right.”
