Rams Extend Coach Sean McVay and GM Les Snead Through 2023

The Rams just made big moves.

Rams coach Sean McVay and general manager Les Snead signed contract extensions through 2023, the team announced on Friday.

"These are two well-deserved extensions for Sean and Les," Rams owner and chairman E. Stanley Kroenke said in a statement. "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."

McVay and Snead have worked together for the past two seasons and reached a 24–8 record during the regular season and gone 2–2 in the playoffs. The Rams won the NFC West division title in the past two seasons and were crowned NFC Champions this winter. Los Angeles reached the Super Bowl in February for the first time since 2001 but fell to the Patriots.

The Rams hired McVay in January 2017 at the age of 30, making him the youngest head coach in the NFL's modern era.
