Shane Waldron is likely the most obvious candidate as the Rams generally like to promote from within whenever possible. The familiarity with the team and the career progression with the Rams since 2017 makes him the obvious choice.
Waldron started as the New England Patriots tight ends coach in 2009. He then served in multiple roles in the college ranks from 2010 to 2015. In 2016, Waldron become an offensive quality control coach for the Washington Redskins.
In 2017, the Rams hired Waldron as a tight ends coach. Then in 2018, Waldron was promoted to passing game coordinator. In that season, Jared Goff had his best statistical season to date. The offense continued to produce despite losing Cooper Kupp to injury and we saw big performances by Gerald Everett and Josh Reynolds.
Waldron continued as the Rams’ passing game coordinator in 2019 and also saw the title of quarterbacks coach bestowed upon him. Despite the offensive struggles throughout the season, the Rams still managed to be fourth in passing yards and 10th in scoring offense. Despite Goff’s struggles, weeks 13-17 saw Goff return to form with 1,643 yards, 11 touchdowns and four interceptions. Goff’s QBR was 98.6 in the final five weeks, during that span, Goff was only sacked four times.
