The Los Angeles Rams have extended Head Coach Sean McVay and General Manager Les Snead through the 2023 season, the team announced today. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"These are two well-deserved extensions for Sean and Les," Rams Owner/Chairman E. Stanley Kroenkesaid. "Their work ethic, leadership and character are traits we value throughout all our organizations. Sean, Les – along with Kevin Demoff, Tony Pastoors and our entire football and business operation staffs – are committed to building a world-class organization and bringing a Super Bowl to Los Angeles. These extensions are an integral part of that quest. We look forward to having them lead our team as we play our final year in the Coliseum and prepare for our new stadium at Hollywood Park."
Since McVay and Snead began working together in 2017, the Rams won back-to-back division titles and turned in one of the best seasons in franchise history in 2018. Last season, Los Angeles finished with a 13-3 record – tied for second-best in team history – and won two playoff games, along with the NFC Championship.
At the time of his hiring in 2017, McVay was the youngest head coach in modern NFL history. His record through the first 32 regular season games of his coaching tenure is one of the best starts of all coaches hired since 2000. McVay won 24-of-32 games during his first two regular seasons as a head coach. He trails only former 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh for the most wins through his first two seasons as a head coach. Since being named general manager, Snead has orchestrated 48 trades, which is the seventh-most in the NFL since 2012. The Rams have selected 63 players in the NFL Draft under Snead, six of which have been named All-Pro, which is tied for the most drafted All-Pro selections since 2012.
Rams C.O.O. Kevin Demoff will join McVay and Snead in a press conference today at 12 p.m. Fans can watch live on Rams Facebook and Twitter.
