McVay indeed confirmed Tuesday at a press conference that he had a contract extension in his pocket. However, the Californian team would like to reach an agreement with Snead before confirming everything.
“[Snead] and I have always been a pair, he said, according to ESPN. We wanted to be able to announce this when we were both done. [Mon contrat] is set. Snead is doing it.”
“It’s something we’ve taken care of, but it’s very important to Snead and me that it’s featured. [de cette façon]because we are 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 could not 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 has served as CEO of the organization since February 2012, when the team was still based in St. Louis.
