In 1963, Malavasi also took on the duties of defensive line coach for the Broncos, and shifted to the offensive line prior to the start of the 1966 season.

Malavasi's resignation caused controversy when Raiders' head coach John Madden accused another team of tampering with Malavasi's services. While he denied the charges, Malavasi was hired on June 5, 1973 as a defensive assistant with the Los Angeles Rams. Over the next five years, Malavasi rose to become defensive coordinator, and was under consideration for head coaching positions with both the Eagles and Chicago Bears. He also was looked at as head coach for the Rams after the departure of Chuck Knox following the 1977 NFL season, but instead stayed as an assistant under new coach George Allen.

However, after just two exhibition games, Allen was fired and Malavasi became the team's head coach, then led the team to their sixth straight NFC West Title with 12-4 record, reaching the NFC Championship game. The following year, the team barely finished above .500 with a 9-7 mark, but won the weak NFC Western Division. In the playoffs, the team upset the Cowboys, then shut down the upstart Tampa Bay Buccaneers 9-0 in the conference title game to give the franchise its first Super Bowl berth ever. After entering the fourth quarter with a lead over the heavily-favored Pittsburgh Steelers, the Rams' upset bid died when they dropped a 31-19 decision in Super Bowl XIV.

An 11-5 mark in 1980 again won the NFC West, but the team fell in the first round to the Cowboys. The following year, the rise of the San Francisco 49ers ended the Rams' reign and saddled them with a 6-10 record. Following a 2-7 mark during the strike-shortened 1982 NFL season, Malavasi was dismissed on January 4, 1983.


After first being part of the ill-fated International Football League, Malavasi resurfaced as an assistant with the United States Football League's Oakland Invaders in early 1984. He left that position just after the start of the season to become defensive coordinator of the league's Los Angeles Express, but the financial woes of the team ended his brief tenure in the final weeks of the season.
