Taylor promoted to Rams QBs coach
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Zac Taylor has been named the Los Angeles Rams’ quarterbacks coach.
The NFC West champion Rams swiftly promoted from within on Tuesday to replace Greg Olson, who left to become Jon Gruden’s offense coordinator with the Oakland Raiders.
The 34-year-old Taylor spent last season as an assistant wide receivers coach on Sean McVay’s staff in Los Angeles. Taylor was the Miami Dolphins’ quarterbacks coach from 2013-15, doubling up in his final season as the offensive coordinator.
Taylor started 26 games in two seasons as Nebraska’s quarterback from 2005-06.
Taylor is the third position coach in three seasons for Jared Goff. McVay doesn’t anticipate the upheaval to cause a problem, since McVay and offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur are sticking around.
