TheRamsWire.com – After losing two key coaches on offense this past offseason – Greg Olson and Matt LaFleur – the Los Angeles Rams could have another coach of interest to the Cleveland Browns. After firing Hue Jackson on Monday, the Browns will spend the next few months seeking a permanent replacement, assuming Gregg Williams doesn’t keep the job long-term.

According to BetOnline.ag, Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor is the favorite to be hired by the Browns to replace Jackson. Sean McVay, for some reason, is tied for the fourth-best odds to be hired by Cleveland. Obviously, there’s no chance McVay is going to the Browns, which makes his name shocking, to say the least.

But let’s focus on Taylor, who is definitely a realistic option for Cleveland. With the Rams sitting at 8-0 and Jared Goff playing the best ball of his career, it’s easy to see why Taylor might be a target for the Browns.

Like so many other teams, they’re likely to seek an offensive-minded coach to work alongside Baker Mayfield, much like the way the Rams did with McVay and Goff. Given the success of that tandem, why not hire the guy closest to them in Taylor?

Taylor is in his first year as the Rams’ quarterbacks coach, replacing Olson in that spot. Last season, he served as the team’s assistant wide receivers coach after coaching the quarterbacks and heading the offense at the University of Cincinnati in 2016. Prior to that college stint, he spent time with the Dolphins from 2012-15, serving as both the quarterbacks coach and interim offensive coordinator his final year there.

Losing offensive coaches is nothing new for Los Angeles, but don’t expect McVay to go anywhere. Him being listed is simply a way to garner attention (and possibly money) on foolish bettors willing to light their money on fire.
