Los Angeles' Rams head coach Sean McVay has now been forever immortalized at his alma matter. 

Saturday evening, Miami University (Ohio) unveiled a statue of McVay, where he played his collegiately and seemingly laid the groundwork to become one of the NFL's most successful coaches:

The statue was part of McVay being inducted into the "Cradle of Coaches" at Miami (Ohio), a tribute he reflected on after the unveiling of his statue. 

"It's an amazing honor to be here," McVay said. "You're so reminded of what makes this place so special, and it's all about the people… To be inducted into the Cradle of Coaches, it really means a lot to me."

Miami (Ohio)'s football program most notably produced Ben Roethlisberger, a first-round pick by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2004 that helped lead the team to two Super Bowl titles. But McVay himself played collegiately for the Redhawks, catching 39 passes for 312 yards in parts of three seasons as a wide receiver. 

McVay's last collegiate season was in 2007, and the next year he was an assistant wide receiver coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 37-year-old has coached in some form every year since, including becoming the head coach of the Rams in 2017. McVay is 60-38 in six seasons as the head coach for the Rams. And perhaps after guiding Los Angeles to a victory in Super Bowl LVI, McVay will one day have a statue outside of SoFi Stadium.
