Falcons sign coach Mike Smith, GM to contract extensions
The Atlanta Falcons extended the contracts of head coach Mike Smith, general manager Thomas Dimitroff and president and CEO Rich McKay, despite the team finishing with a 4-12 record this season, the team announced Monday.
The team signed McKay to a four-year contract extension, and NFL.com reports that Dimitroff and Smith signed one-year extensions.
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.”
Smith has a 60-36 record in six seasons in Atlanta, but has a 1-4 record in the playoffs.
