Les Snead believes Sean McVay is committed to the Rams long-term
Sean McVay took a little bit of time after the Rams’ season ended to decide whether he wanted to continue coaching or take some time away from football. A few days later, he came to the conclusion that he’s not done coaching just yet, returning as the leader in Los Angeles.
It was the second straight offseason that McVay mulled his options, considering TV deals in 2022 after the Rams won a Super Bowl. Losing McVay would’ve been a significant blow to the team, but now that he’s back, there’s a good chance the Rams will bounce back from a disappointing 5-12 campaign.
General manager Les Snead isn’t worried about the possibility that McVay will take things year by year. He believes McVay is committed long-term after taking some time to weigh his future this offseason.
Rams GM Les Snead believes Sean McVay's decision to return for 2023 also signaled a long-term mindset change for the coach: "I don't think you're gonna see Sean each year determine whether he wants to coach. … He spent some time this year and figured that out."

McVay has led the Rams to a winning record in five of his six seasons at the helm, only missing the playoffs twice – which is the same number of times the Rams have reached the Super Bowl in his tenure.
And still, McVay remains the youngest head coach in the NFL despite entering his seventh season.
