After a successful, bounce-back 2023 season, the Los Angeles Rams could lose a couple of coaches/assistants to other teams looking to fill vacancies on their respective coaching staffs.

The Rams are preparing defensive coordinator Raheem Morris to leave as he’s been getting interviewed by multiple teams for their head coaching opportunities. However, they might be looking for another pass-game coordinator as well.

Rams Rumors: Steelers, Raiders Interested In Zac Robinson For OC Job

Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reported Monday that the Pittsburgh Steelers and Las Vegas Raiders have put in slips to interview Los Angeles pass-game coordinator Zac Robinson. He added that Robinson will interview with the New England Patriots on Tuesday and already met with the Chicago Bears.

The former Oklahoma State quarterback wrapped up his second season with the Rams as their quarterbacks coach and pass game coordinator. Robinson has spent five seasons in the Rams organization, starting as an assistant quarterbacks coach in 2019.

After being an assistant quarterbacks coach, Robinson became an assistant wide receivers coach in 2020 before going back to an assistant QBs coach in 2021.

Robinson and offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur helped Matthew Stafford rebound this season after playing nine games last season due to injury. Stafford completed 62.6% of his passes for 3,965 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.

Even though Robinson hasn’t been a play caller or offensive coordinator yet in the league, it’s not shocking to see the Steelers and Raiders wanting to talk with him. The Rams’ offense does a great job of getting their playmakers open in space and utilizes motion. 

The Steelers have a young quarterback in Kenny Pickett and playmakers at the skill positions who could use an injection of explosive plays. Meanwhile, the Raiders are trying to figure out what to do at quarterback, but they are loaded at running back and wide receiver. 

With Robinson getting multiple interview requests, it’s only a matter of time before he becomes an offensive coordinator somewhere.
