Falcons' Smith, Dimitroff, McKay sign extensions

By The Associated Press
FLOWERY BRANCH -- Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith and general manager Thomas Dimitroff have signed one-year contract extensions through the 2016 season.

Also, the Falcons announced Monday President Rich McKay signed a four-year extension through May 2019.

McKay, who chairs the NFL's competition committee, will continue to serve as chief executive officer of the Falcons while leading the development and operation of the team's new stadium, scheduled to open in 2017.

Dimitroff and Smith each came to the Falcons before the 2008 season. The Falcons are 60-36 under their leadership, including a 4-12 finish in 2012.

Financial terms of the new deals were not released.
