Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay is expected to be back on the sidelines in 2022, but a huge company may make it very hard to possibly turn down their huge offer.
NFL TV ratings exploded in 2021, with advertisers flocking towards the golden ticket of television entertainment. It’s resulted in Fox, CBS, Disney and NBC agreeing to pay the NFL $100-plus billion over the next decade for the rights to broadcast games. Meanwhile, Amazon is happily prepared to pay $1 billion per season for the broadcasting rights to Thursday Night Football.
Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reported on Wednesday night that Aikman is on the verge of signing a Tony Romo-like contract at ESPN.
In the meantime, Amazon may make a huge push to sign McVay.
According to Peter King of NBC Sports, ESPN or Amazon could be very than willing to offer a deal worth more than $15 million per season.
A contract worth $15-plus million per season is a lot more than McVay makes right now. A coaches salary isn’t tied to a teams salary cap and won’t affect impact their ability to spend on players. The rams may need to break the bank with an extension to keep Mcvay on board for many years to come.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
