Rams still talking contract extension with Jeff Fisher, Les Snead

Jeff Fisher and Les Snead haven't lead the Los Angeles Rams to the playoffs yet, but they've done enough to earn new contracts with the team. It's important to have continuity.

Apparently six or seven wins a year is enough to earn a contract extension in Los Angeles.

The Rams will engage in contract extension talks with head coach Jeff Fisher and General Manager Jeff Snead over the next couple months, Vincent Bonsignore of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. That’s nothing new; those contract talks have reportedly been going on since February.

In their four years running the team together, Fisher and Snead have gone 7-8-1, 7-9, 6-10 and 7-9. That’s usually a record that would lead to a firing, not a contract extension.

But Rams owner Stan Kroenke seems to want stability in Los Angeles, and so he doesn’t want to make a change at the top any time soon. Fisher and Snead are entering the final seasons of the five-year contracts they signed in St. Louis in 2012.

If Fisher and Snead continue to produce six or seven wins a season, they’re not going to keep their jobs forever. But from all indications, they’re going to remain in charge in Los Angeles for years to come.
