Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay is the favorite to become the new Cleveland Browns leader.

Currently, McVay is at +200 to take over for the recently fired Hue Jackson. University of Oklahoma coach and former Baker Mayfield-mentor Lincoln Riley is second at +250.

This makes absolutely no sense at all. McVay has the Rams at 8-0 right now. Why would he ever leave? His contract details aren’t public, but you can bet he’s making a ton of cash. That means the Browns would have to just dump money on his head for him to even entertain the idea. (RELATED: Cleveland Browns Snap Shocking Cold Streak Involving Johnny Manziel)

The idea that McVay is going to leave the Rams is honestly laughable. Straight up laughable. It’s never going to happen.

I have no idea who will be coaching Cleveland next season or for the long term. If I had to bet, I think Lincoln Riley is a much more likely option and a better bet. He coached Baker Mayfield in college, has a history with him, is a proven winner, and is a young guy. That’s a lot of things working in his favor.

As for McVay, don’t count on it. There’s a snowball’s chance in hell that ever happens.
