McVay stated that he wanted to wait to a joint announcement with Les Snead regarding the extension when the time was right.
“It is something that we’ve been taken care of, but it is very important for Les and I to kind of have that represented as we’re a partnership and a pair,” McVay said.
McVay, who didn’t disclose the terms of the long-expected deal, said he feels “good” about the extension, saying it was “always a really good dialogue that existed.
“These things, they take time, but I think it is important,” McVay said Tuesday. “We had a respect for the process. We wanted it to be able to be announced when both Les and I got done because of the partnership. And I think it’s only gotten better as we go, but that’s kind of where it’s at right now.”
Considering that McVay won a Super Bowl last year, it’s pretty clear that giving him a raise and job security was the right thing to do.
