The Rams have agreed to extensions with coach Sean McVay and general manager Les Snead through the 2023 season, the team announced Friday.The move will keep together a tandem that is credited with not only helping turn the Rams into an offensive powerhouse that became NFC champions last season but also is regarded one of the top coach/GM pairs in the league. Philip Rivers ‘loves’ Melvin Gordon, but Chargers seem content with ‘deep’ running back group “Sean and Les have been a dynamic team and have been integral in developing a culture that has allowed our players and entire organization to thrive,” owner Stan Kroenke said (via NFL Network).Snead, 48, joined the Rams organization as GM when the team still was in St. Louis. It was there that he selected future All-Pro defensive lineman Aaron Donald in the 2014 NFL Draft, but it wasn’t until two years later — after the team moved back to LA — that he made a career- and franchise-defining move when he traded up in the 2016 draft to select quarterback Jared Goff with the first overall pick.That move came on the heels of his taking running back Todd Gurley in 2015.That 1-2 punch, however, didn’t come to fruition until Snead and the Rams hired McVay, the Redskins offensive coordinator who at just shy of his 31st birthday at the time became the youngest head coach since the start of the NFL’s modern era.All McVay has done in his two seasons at the helm is lead the Rams to a 24-8 mark, consecutive NFC West titles and a spot in the Super Bowl last February. WOOOO! Les get to work!McVay + Snead are extended through 2023! 🙌— Los Angeles Rams (@RamsNFL) July 26, 2019″I’m very thankful to be a Ram for many years to come, working with great ownership, people, coaches, and players,” McVay told NFL.com. “It’s exciting to get camp going and we’re ready to roll up our sleeves up and get to work.”No terms were announced, but NFL Media described the extensions as “lucrative.” Related News Ezekiel Elliott contract: Cowboys star seeking record deal, report says In the process, the Rams last season ranked in the top five in the major offensive categories.A loss to the Patriots in the Super Bowl leaves some work undone, and Friday’s announcement assures that McVay and Snead will be running the team when it is scheduled to move into its lavish new stadium in 2020.
