The NFL is similar to a grade school class when a team fires their head coach and makes one of the assistants an interim.
Back in 2017, the Rams were looking for a head coach that could help Jared Goff elevate his game to a completely different level, and while hiring McVay as the youngest head coach in National Football League history was viewed as a huge risk, it certainly paid off big time. He's been an offensive coordinator twice - for the Oakland Raiders from 1998 to 2001 and for the Dallas Cowboys from 2012 to 2014 - and served as the Raiders' head coach during the 2002 and 2003 seasons.
"Through the first five games of the 2019 season, the team has clearly not performed up to expectations, and we all share in that responsibility", read a team-issued statement.
Callahan, however, said Haskins is not a candidate for the starting role at this time.

After the home loss to New England, Gruden was asked if he knew where he stood with the Redskins.
With controversy swirling around the team - there were reports that Gruden didn't want to draft quarterback Dwayne Haskins earlier this year - it made sense for all parties, although you could pin this one on roster construction more than coaching. "[If] my key works on Monday, keep working". Offensively, two of the Redskins' top players didn't provide help: Tight end Jordan Reed hasn't played this season because of a concussion, and perennial Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams remains a holdout. Even as this season started off poorly, the players said they refused to quit.
"As we go forward, I'm going to rely on the staff ... and the leadership of our team to change the course", Callahan said.
And while Gruden had some success drawing up and calling creative plays for Washington's offence, his area of expertise, he never seemed to get a feel for other aspects of the job.
