Eagles' Andy Reid Signs Three-Year Contract Extension
"It was inevitable. There's no point waiting," Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said at a press conference. "This sends a great message to the players right in the middle of the season. I've always valued stability."
Reid is the winningest coach in Eagles history -- counting Philadelphia's Week 13 rout of Atlanta, Reid has 115 wins, 10 coming in the postseason.
There had been some speculation that the 2010 season would be Reid's last with the Eagles, either by his choice or the team's.
Reid has come under often-unwarranted criticism in Philadelphia at times. The Eagles missed the playoffs in 1999, Reid's first year, but have been to the postseason in seven of the nine seasons since and seem likely to qualify again this season.
"I love Philadelphia, the fans have been unbelievable," Reid said. "They're fair. If we stink, they let us know. If we're doing OK, they tell us."
Reid's Eagles have played in four NFC title games and one Super Bowl, a loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX. Reid has a 1-3 mark in conference championship games, including a loss to the Arizona Cardinals in January of 2009.
