Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead will be the Rams’ new head coach, and he will also be responsible for personnel decisions and the direction of the team.
A source told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport that Snead’s hiring comes after a lengthy search that included several candidates.
He was in talks to replace Rams general manger Sean McVay and head coach Sean McAdoo.
A number of NFL front offices were looking for a replacement for McAduah and McAdoos first season as head coach.
It was a big week for the Rams when they fired McAdow’s offensive coordinator, Brian Schottenheimer, on Tuesday.
In addition, the Rams also hired former NFL general manager John Schneider, who had been a scout for the San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins, to be their new head coaching hire.
The Rams have a bye week before the regular season begins, and they’ll face the Tennessee Titans on Sunday at 8:30 p.m.
ET on ESPN2.
