Vice President, Communications

Biography

Artis Twyman is in his tenth year as senior director of communications. In this position, Twyman oversees the media relations staff and directs the Rams' communication efforts.

The 2021 season will be Twyman's 19th season with the Rams. He previously served three seasons as the team's director of media relations after spending six years as assistant director of football media.

After being named a finalist in 2017 for the Pro Football Writers Association's Pete Rozelle Award, which is given annually to the NFL club public relations staff that consistently strives for excellence in its dealings and relationships with the media, the Rams won the award following the 2018 season under the guidance of Twyman. It marked the first time since 1997 the Rams have won the award, and only the second time in franchise history.

Prior to joining the Rams in 2003, Twyman spent two years as public relations assistant for the Seattle Seahawks. He broke into the NFL in 2001 as a public relations intern for the expansion Houston Texans. From 1995-2001, he worked in the Tennessee State University Public Relations Department serving in many capacities, including three years as public information officer.

In 2012, Twyman was one of only two public relations officials throughout the 32-team league chosen to work the Pro Bowl in Honolulu, Hawaii. He also received this honor in 2011, 2009, 2008 and 2006. Twyman also was part of the public relations staffs for NFC Championship games, as well as several Super Bowls, including Super Bowl LIV in Miami, Fla. last season.

Twyman earned his undergraduate degree in speech communications from Tennessee State University in Nashville, Tenn., and a master's degree in mass communications from Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro.
