Sean McVay is no stranger to Atlanta.
The Los Angeles Rams leader, who turns 33 on Jan. 24, is the youngest coach in the NFL.
McVay grew up in Atlanta and attended Marist School, which he led to a Class AAAA high school football championship in 2003.
McVay got his start in the NFL as an assistant to longtime family friend Jon Gruden — at the time the coach of the Buccaneers. After Gruden’s departure from Tampa Bay in 2010, McVay joined the staff of the Washington Redskins as the assistant tight ends coach.
It was there between 2011 and 2013 that he met his girlfriend, Veronika Khomyn. Khomyn, a model from Ukraine, studied at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va.
McVay spent three years coaching Washington’s offense before joining the Rams in 2017.
He and Khomyn, 29, two now live in a 4,660 square-foot, six bedroom, six bathroom home in Encino, Calif., that was purchased in 2017 for $2.71 million.
Khomyn is very active on social media. She has about 40,000 Instagram followers. She often refers to him as “McBae.”
McVay will coach the Rams in their fourth Super Bowl appearance Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019, at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
