Despite having the prestige as the youngest NFL head coach to win Super Bowl, the 36-year-old is the son of a TV executive, Tim McVay, and yearns to start a family of his own.
At 31 years old, McVay became the youngest head coach in NFL history and has taken the franchise to achievement which has not been seen since “The Greatest Show on Turf” days. Over five seasons with the Rams, McVay recorded a 55-26 regular season while helping Rams to two Super Bowl appearances. The team also wins three NFC West titles and two NFC Championships.
In an intense game, Los Angeles Rams claimed its late touchdown that lead to the victory against Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl 56 by 23-20 just recently. Another credit goes to head coach Vogel and the whole team. After the game, in an open press, McVay commented that led to the rumors.

“I love this so much that it’s such a passion,” McVay said Friday to Nick Wagoner. “But I also know that what I’ve seen from some of my closest friends, whether it’s coaches or even some of our players, I’m gonna be married this summer, I want to have a family and I think being able to find that balance but also be able to give the time necessary.
These comments led listeners to assume that he wants to retire. The fact is he has nothing to lose if he retires gave the impression that leveraged the assumptions he could end up as a successful broadcaster, remembering that his father is the owner of one.
“I don’t really know. I know I love football and I’m so invested in this thing and I’m in the moment right now. But at some point, too, if you said what do you want to be able to do? I want to be able to have a family and I want to be able to spend time with them.”

McVay’s respond to false rumors
“I have always had a dream about being able to be a father and I can’t predict the future, you know? I jokingly say that,” said McVay when he shrugged off a question about coaching until he is 60, which would be another 24 years.
Currently, he is engaged to Ukrainian model/luxury real estate agent Veronika Khomyn. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported differently on Saturday. He said McVay told him that he’ll be back in 2022 with the Rams.
“What he texted me was, ‘I am committed to this team, and coaching,”’ Rapoport said on-air. “Sean McVay will be back for the 2022 season and beyond. What he was simply trying to say was that family will become his main focus and coaching will not, but that won’t be anytime soon.”g.
