Default Andy Reid signs 3 year extension

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Eagles have extended the contract of head coach Andy Reid through the 2013 season.

Reid, also the club's executive vice president of football operations, is in his 11th season as the team's head coach. He is the second-longest tenured coach in the NFL, behind only Jeff Fisher, who has been with Tennessee for 16 years.

"In every way he is the epitome of what you are looking for in a coach, he's got passion and all the qualities you look for in a leader," said Philadelphia owner Jeffrey Lurie. "Andy has said before that he loves it here and wants to remain here, so we got something done since there was no point in waiting."

The Eagles are 8-4 this season and tied for first place in the NFC East with the Dallas Cowboys.

Reid has a record of 105-66-1 in the regular season and a mark of 10-7 in the playoffs. He has taken the Eagles to the postseason in seven of his first 10 years, with five division titles and five trips to the NFC Championship Game.

The Eagles reached the Super Bowl only once, however, after the 2004 season, losing to the New England Patriots.

"I'm really happy to be a Philadelphia Eagle and very thankful to Jeff and the organization," said Reid. "It's great that I get to be a part of this for a few more years. I also want to thank the coaches and players because none of this is possible without them."

Good signing. Not always the best coach out there, but he wins games, especially in December.
