Snead to interview for Rams vacant GM position
Falcons Director of Player Personnel Les Snead is set to interview with the St. Louis Rams for their open GM gig according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Snead is among several candidates for the position, recently vacated when the Rams fired Billy Devaney. Devaney himself was a former member of the Falcons front office before taking over the GM job in St. Louis in 2008.
According to reports, the Rams are looking to hire a top-flight head coach in Jeff Fisher and pair him with a young GM such as Snead. Fisher is set to interview with the Rams today, and if he accepts their position he is expected to aid in the selection of the new GM.
Snead, 37, joined the Falcons in 1998 after three seasons working as a pro scout for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was promoted to his current position with the Falcons following the 2008 season, and has aided GM Thomas Dimitroff in overseeing both the college and pro personnel departments.
