The Rams did not win the Super Bowl, but members of coach Sean McVay’s staff continue to draw interest from other teams.

Aubrey Pleasant, who has coached cornerbacks the last two seasons, is scheduled to interview this week for the defensive coordinator position with the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Bengals are coached by Zac Taylor, who was the Rams’ quarterback coach last season.

Pleasant joined the Rams staff under McVay after four seasons on the Washington Redskins staff. He was an offensive assistant for one season before moving to defense.
