New Rams Coach Sean McVay is working quickly to put together his staff.
Veteran defensive coordinator Wade Phillips already is in place, and people with knowledge of the situation said Saturday that Joe Barry has agreed to terms to become linebackers coach and assistant head coach.
Barry, 46, was the Washington Redskins’ defensive coordinator the last two seasons. He was fired Jan. 5, along with two other assistants, after the Redskins defense finished 28th in the NFL for the second consecutive season.
McVay was the Redskins’ offensive coordinator for three seasons.
