Rams GM Search Includes Interview Of Les Snead, Falcons Personnel Director

The St. Louis Rams have restarted their search for their next general manager and have currently interviewed nine candidates for the position. Les Snead, director of player personnel for Atlanta Falcons, is one of them.

The Rams put their GM search on hold for two weeks as the Super Bowl played out. The Rams will continue to interview and decide who will replace the previous general manager, Billy Devaney, in the next week or so.

Snead has been with the Falcons organization for 13 years, working in the personnel department the entire time. He is now in his third year as the Director of Player Personnel, and among the biggest moves to have come during his time have been the trade Tony Gonzalez and the draft-day trade to get Julio Jones.

The Falcons have made the playoffs in two consecutive years with Snead at the head of player personnel. Snead has also interviewed with the Bears and Colts for their GM positions as well.
