NFL: Rams go for stability


Head Coach Sean McVay and General Manager Les Snead will be long with the Los Angeles Rams, the most recent Super Bowl champions.

McVay has en effect confirmed Tuesday at a press conference that he had a contract extension in his pocket. The California team, however, wants to settle with Snead before confirming everything.

“[Snead] and I have always been a pair, he said, according to the ESPN network. We wanted to be able to announce this when we were both done. [My contract] is settled. Snead is doing that.”

“It's something we've been dealing with, but it's very important to Snead and me that it's presented [that way], because we're in a partnership.”

The youngest driver in NFL history when he was hired, McVay has led the Rams to two Super Bowl games since taking charge of the club. If he couldn't avoid a 13-3 loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 53, he lifted the Vince-Lombardi trophy at the end of the last campaign by virtue of a gain of 23 at 20 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Now 37, McVay is 55-26 in five seasons with the Rams.

Snead is CEO of the organization since February 2012, when the team was still based in St. Louis.
