His grandfather, John McVay, was the former general manager of the San Francisco 49ers, who helped the team win five Super Bowl seasons. As a child, Sean lived with his family in Ohio for a time until he turned six.
For his high school education, Sean McVay enrolled at the Marist School in Brookhaven, Georgia. During this time he played as a defensive back and quarterback for the War Eagles High School team for four years.

He graduated from high school in 2004 and continued his studies at the University of Miami in Oxford, Ohio, where he continued to play football as a wide receiver. He played in this position from 2004-2007 and received the Scholar-Athlete Award from Miami in 2007. Before graduating in 2018, he had a record of 39 receptions for 312 yards.
Early Coaching Career
Sean McVay’s coaching career began in 2008 when he was appointed Assistant Wide Receiver’s Coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers under the leadership of Coach Jon Gruden. He demonstrated a high level of professionalism and capacity in his work and was promptly appointed Quality Control/Broadband Coach, overseeing the training of the United Football League (UFL) Florida Tuskers.
His reputation and fame grew so much that the Los Angeles Rams signed him to coach the team on January 12, 2017. At that time he was just 30 years old. With this move, McVay would go down in NFL history as the youngest head coach in the sport, replacing former record holder Lane Kiffin, who was 31 years old, 259 days old when he became coach of the Oakland Raiders in 2007. Sean McVay made his season debut as head coach on September 10, 2017, in the game against the Indianapolis Colts.
In the game, which took place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Sean led the Los Angeles Rams to a stunning 46-9 win over their opponents in a home game. In five later games, Sean led the Rams to an overall score of 142 (151) points, a league-high, and a franchise high. His team also won against the Jacksonville Jaguars in an international series match, in which the Rams scored a record 5-2, their first shutout victory since 2014, the first since 2004. Sean McVay received further accolades on January 19, 2018, when the Pro Football Writers of America named him “Coach of the Year.
Family – Wife, Girlfriend
As a football coach, you would think that McVay would not have much time for a serious relationship, considering that he is fully committed to the development of his team. It might interest you, however, that although he has never been married, he has a lovely Ukrainian girlfriend named Veronika Khomyn with whom he lives in Los Angeles. They welcomed their very first son together in 2016.
Height And Weight
One thing is for sure, the right body type especially for a sport like American football is crucial if an athlete hopes to succeed in this sport. Sean McVay stands at an average height of 5 feet 10 inches with a fitness mass of 84 kg (187 lbs). Although his height is not that bad, it could be a limiting factor that may not allow him to rise to the highest point in an NFL football career. This could be the reason why he chose a career as a coach instead.
