According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, both are now under contract through 2026.

McVay has a 55-26 record across five seasons with the Rams, leading the team to a Super Bowl title last season. He has a 7-3 career postseason record, including a second trip to the Super Bowl after the 2018 season.

Snead has been the team's GM since 2012, helping turn around an organization that was 2-14 before his arrival.

McVay and Snead previously had two years remaining on their contracts, but chief operating officer Kevin Demoff said in March his plan was to extend both.

"They have an amazing working relationship," Demoff said. "You'd be foolish, when you look at how hard it is in this league to win, not to try to keep together a pair that’s done it really well."

There was some speculation McVay could step away from coaching after last year's title, with multiple television networks trying to sign him as an analyst.

The 36-year-old has instead decided to remain on the sidelines and will clearly stick with the team for the long haul. He will now try to lead the Rams to back-to-back titles, a feat that hasn't been accomplished since the New England Patriots in 2004-05.

Los Angeles kicks off the 2022 season Thursday night against another top contender in the Buffalo Bills.
