The Atlanta Falcons announced contract extensions for team president Rich McKay, general manager Thomas Dimitroff and coach Mike Smith.
McKay signed a four-year extension through May 2019. He's entering his eleventh season with the Falcons. He will continue to serve as the president and chief executive officer of the club, with responsibility for all business operations of the Falcons, as well as the development and operation of the new stadium.
Dimitroff and Smith each signed one-year extensions to their contracts. Both men are entering their seventh season with the Falcons, with a six-year cumulative regular season win-loss record of 60-36 – tied for the sixth highest winning percentage in the league over the same period of time.
“We are fortunate to have talented key leaders at the Falcons who are dedicated to a common goal of being a league leader on and off the field,” Falcons owner Arthur Blank said. “I have great respect for the skills and commitment of Rich, Thomas and Smitty, and I look forward to continuing to support and work with them in the years to come."
