Rams offensive coordinator Liam Coen is returning to the college level.
The University of Kentucky on Tuesday announced it has hired Coen back as its offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach, roles he previously held with the Wildcats when he was on head coach Mark Stoops' staff in 2021.
Coen and Rams pass game coordinator/quarterbacks coach Zac Robinson played key roles in getting quarterback Baker Mayfield prepared for his Rams debut on a tight turnaround in in Week 14. In that game, Mayfield completed 22 of 35 pass attempts for 230 yards and the game-winning touchdown on Thursday Night Football.
The 2022 season was Coen's second stint on Los Angeles' coaching staff. During his first stint, he served as assistant wide receivers coach (2018-19) then assistant quarterbacks coach (2020).
