The St. Louis rams have hired Les Snead as their new general manager, according to the Associated Press.

Snead had previously served as the director of player personnel for the Atlanta falcons. The 37-year-old has worked in the NFL since the age of 20, and was also considered for the Chicago Bears general manager vacancy.

In total, Snead worked for the Atlanta Falcons for the past  13 years, and prior to that he worked in the Jacksonville Jaguars scouting department for two seasons. He will join head coach Jeff Fisher as part of a new regime in St. Louis built around experience and results. Fisher was hired to rebuild the Rams on the field after the club managed to win just two games in 2011.
