Exciting news for Rams fans! The Rams announced they have signed both Head Coach Sean McVay and General Manager Les Snead to lucrative contract extensions that will keep them with the organization through 2023.

Les Snead has been the Rams general manager since 2012 and overseen its move from St. Louis to Los Angeles in addition drafted top players like Todd Gurley and Aaron Donald. He is a big reason that they turned things around since moving to Los Angeles, largely to do with hiring Sean McVay in 2017.

In two season, McVay won 75 percent of his regular season games (24-8 record) and is 2-2 in the postseason, including last year’s Super Bowl loss. He made an immediate when he took over a team that finished 4-12 and led the Rams to their first NFC West title since 2003. He transformed an offense that was ranked dead last in scoring to the league’s best. After that season, he was named NFL Coach of the Year in 2017.

That success continued in 2018 when McVay took the team to another level. As the Rams went 13-3 to capture another division title, added a pair of playoff triumph including the dramatic overtime victory over the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game to clinch a berth to Super Bowl LII.

Now that they are both locked up long-term in addition Gurley and Donald signing long-term extensions last year. They also signed their nickel corner Troy Hill, who filled in for injured Aqib Talib, to provide depth in the secondary. Jared Goff is next!
