It didn't take long for Rams coach Sean McVay to work his magic in Los Angeles, and he was rewarded on Saturday night at NFL Honors by being named the 2017 NFL Coach of the Year after his first season as a head coach. There have not been many turnarounds bigger than the Rams in 2017, with Los Angeles coming off a dreadful 2016 season that featured a whopping four wins during their first season in a new city. The result was Jeff Fisher being fired midseason; the Rams chose to replace him with the youngest coach in the NFL, hiring McVay away from the Redskins after just three seasons as Washington's offensive coordinator. The results were incredible: the Rams won 11 games and took the NFC West away from the Seahawks and Cardinals, establishing themselves as a legitimate long-term threat in the division. Todd Gurley exploded in his third season after a down year in 2016 and was named the NFL Offensive Player of the Year. Jared Goff made a massive leap in his second season, looking like a franchise quarterback after shaping up to be a bust in his first year.
