Entering the final year of his contract this fall, the 57-year-old signed a multiyear extension with Minnesota on Monday.

This announcement comes after the Vikings inked head coach Mike Zimmer to a three-year extension July 24.

“Rick has been outstanding in his role as Vikings general manager,” Vikings owner Mark Wilf said in a statement. “We are excited and honored to have him continue to lead our efforts to build a championship roster and first-class organization. With Rick’s and Coach Zimmer’s leadership in place, we are in a great position to continue to compete for a Super Bowl.”

Spielman joined the organization in 2006 as vice president of player personnel and was hired as general manager in 2012.

Spielman hired Zimmer as head coach in 2014. Over their six years at the helm together, the Vikings have gone 57-38-1 and claimed two NFC North titles.
