FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams have given coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead contract extensions.

Rams spokesman Artis Twyman confirmed the moves before Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots. The deal for Fisher was first reported by the NFL Network, which said it was a two-year extension through 2018.

Twyman said he couldn’t comment on terms of the deals. He said, “I think that’s something coach Fisher will discuss after the game.”

In his fifth season with the Rams, the first four in St. Louis, Fisher has presided over a 31-43-1 record. They have yet to finish above .500 in his tenure and they haven’t made the playoffs since 2004.

Snead also became the Rams’ general manager in 2012, taking over a 2-14 team.

Both Fisher and Snead were in the final month of their deals. Owner Stan Kroenke, who moved the franchise from St. Louis to Los Angeles this year, has praised Fisher, a Southern California native, for capably shepherding the team’s move.
