Sean McVay has impressed plenty of people in his journey to the Super Bowl in only his second season as an NFL head coach. Not a bad rise for someone who only turns 33 on Thursday.

Kirk Herbstreit is one of the many who are singing McVay's praises. The ESPN college football analyst took to Twitter on Monday to give his thoughts on the young coach.

Herbstreit tweeted that he is "blown away" with McVay.

Still can’t quite grasp how blown away I am by Sean McVay.
Dude was PLAYING CFB in 2007 for @MiamiOHFootball!
Now he’s takin the @RamsNFL to THE SUPER BOWL?!
This guy is a SUPER STAR!!
Not just the success but HOW he handles himself is my favorite aspect of his meteoric rise!!

McVay's resume at this age is eye-opening, no doubt about it. He will have the ultimate test though in Super Bowl LIII.

New England's Bill Belichick has made many a young "genius" look out of their depth, particularly when he has extra time to prepare. The chess match in this game will be a lot of fun to watch.

The Rams and Patriots will play in Super Bowl LIII at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on February 3.
