The Los Angeles Rams are coming off one of the most disappointing seasons in recent NFL history.
The reigning Super Bowl champions were never at their best, struggling to stay healthy and failing to live up to the expectations.
Moreover, once again, Sean McVay’s continuity as their Head Coach was a topic of debate throughout the season, with several insiders stating that he was eager to retire at the end of the year.
That will not be the case, meaning both Matthew Stafford and Aaron Donald will also run it back at So-Fi Stadium, but that’s not the only good news for the Rams heading into their bounce-back campaign in 2023.
They’ve now hired one of the most sought-after young assistants to serve as their new Tight Ends coach, hiring former Patriots’ TE Coach Nick Caley.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, Caley drew strong interest in becoming the new Offensive Coordinator for the New England Patriots, Houston Texans, and New York Jets, among others.
The Rams are hiring ex-Patriots TEs coach Nick Caley as their new tight ends coach, per sources. Caley interviewed for OC jobs with the Pats, Jets and Texans, and had inquiries for other jobs, but saw the Rams as the best fit.

He’s one of the biggest rising stars in the league in terms of top assistants, and the Rams have found plenty of success with their young signal-callers and coaches thus far.
As for the Patriots, they’ll now have to dig deep into the market for a new TE Coach to join Bill O’Brien and Bill Belichick on the offensive side of the field, with newly-hired Will Lawning most likely taking over Caley’s former position after serving as O’Brien’s TE coach during his days with the Houston Texans.NEXT: The Rams Shared A Nice Farewell To Tom Brady
