What however surprised many was that McVay was just 30 at the time of his appointment, making him the youngest coach in modern NFL history.

Intriguing Details About Sean McVay’s Love Life
Given his success, as well as the fact that he is quite good-looking, it would not be wrong to surmise that McVay has had an active love life.
