FLOWERY BRANCH — Atlanta Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff, head coach Mike Smith and President & CEO Rich McKay have signed contract extensions, the team announced Monday in a press release. 

Financial terms of the agreements were not disclosed.

Dimitroff and Smith each signed one-year contract extensions through the 2016 season.

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.

During their tenures with the Falcons, Smith is a three-time Sporting News NFL Head Coach of the Year, two-time KC 101 Club NFC Coach of the Year and 2008 AP NFL Coach of the Year; and Dimitroff is a two-time Sporting News NFL Executive of the Year and 2012 Jack Horrigan Award recipient.

McKay, signed to a four-year extension through May 2019, is entering his 11th 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.

“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 & Chairman 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.”
