“Brown has been on the Rams’ staff under Sean McVay for the past three seasons, beginning in 2020 as the team’s running backs coach. He served as the Rams’ assistant head coach/running backs coach in 2021 before assuming his current title in 2022.
Brown was part of the Rams staff that helped the team win its first Super Bowl championship at the end of the 2021 season, as Los Angeles defeated Cincinnati in Super Bowl LVI, 23-20. In his season directing the team’s running backs the Rams finished 10th in the NFL with 126.1 rushing yards per game.”
Brown is the ninth candidate interviewed for the position. Either the Buccaneers are being very thorough, or there’s not a whole lot of interest in the job.
