McVay Named Sporting News’ 2017 Coach of the Year:

Head coach Sean McVay — the youngest head coach in modern league history —  helped the Rams complete one of the best year-to-year turnarounds in the NFL. Not only did he lead the club to an 11-5 record, but he also guided Los Angeles to its first NFC West title in over a decade.

For those reasons, McVay was voted as the Sporting News 2017 Coach of the Year. Earlier this month, he was also named the PFWA Coach of the Year and should likely contend for the same title at the NFL Honors Award Show in February.

4. Mike Zimmer, Vikings
5. Bill Belichick, Patriots
