L.A. Rams “Get Back” coach who’s job is to physically restrain head coach Sean McVay from stepping on the field is now in real hot water … he’s been charged with sexual battery.
His name is Ted Rath — and he went viral during the 2018 season thanks to a highlight reel showing him constantly pulling McVay toward the bench so he wouldn’t get run over by players and refs.
Rath — who’s also the team’s strength and conditioning coach — has been hit with 3 misdemeanor sexual battery charges stemming from an alleged incident on June 15, 2018.
Officials tell TMZ Sports the incident took place at a private residence in Moorpark, CA … with the alleged victim claiming Rath groped her multiple times without her consent.
The Rams addressed the charges on Friday … saying “We take these allegations very seriously.”
The Rams added … “Once the charges were filed, we decided Ted would take a leave of absence from the team as this matter works its way through the justice system.”
Rath is facing more than a year behind bars if convicted … and he would have to register as a sex offender.
Rath is due back in court next month.
As the game plays on, Sean McVay and his “Get Back Coach” tango on the sideline.
