Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay finally avenged his defeat in the big game by winning Super Bowl LVI over the Cincinnati Bengals.
But while he will certainly get a nice bonus from team owner Stan Kroenke, he might have difficulties asking for a raise.
After all, he signed a five-year contract in 2019 which earned him an annual salary of $8.5 million.
That’s a low figure considering that he’s now a Super Bowl champion and the youngest head coach to achieve the feat.
If McVay feels that the money in coaching isn’t enough, he will definitely command top dollar when he becomes a football analyst on television.
If you're asking yourself why on earth Sean McVay would retire at 36, this is why. https://t.co/pFaI8bma3z

If Tony Romo is making $18 million to do commentary for CBS, how much can a champion coach like McVay command?
Cashing In On The Win
It’s hard not to admire the likes of Bill Belichick, Pete Carroll, and Mike Tomlin who have been in their roles for so long.
The mental and emotional grind of being a head coach can take a toll even on the brightest minds in the sport.
The late John Madden had a short but successful coaching career which he parlayed into being an analyst and a video game fixture.
McVay can follow that path given his ability to read the game and recall plays that happened years ago.
If he makes himself available to become an analyst, major networks will take the bait.
It’s a win-win situation for both parties because the station gets a champion head coach who can dissect the game well while McVay earns a ton of money staying close to the game he loves.
He can get full-time cash for part-time work.
