The Philadelphia Eagles have signed head coach Andy Reid to a three-year contract extension. He is now signed through the 2013 season.
The financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. He will reportedly make between $5-6 million per season.
“He has all the ingredients: leadership, football knowledge, the ability to gain the respect of everybody that he works with, especially the players, assembling the staff,” owner Jeffrey Lurie said Wednesday. “Every ingredient you could possibly look for, including a phenomenal track record of getting very far and if you don’t get very far you have no chance. I am extremely confident that we have a great opportunity going forward.”

This agreement was struck before the Eagles played the New York Giants on Sunday. The Eagles presently have an 8-4 record.
Reid has guided the team to 115 wins during his tenure before this agreement. He also has a .611 win percentage.

“I’m a piece of the puzzle here, and by my waist size I’m a big piece, but in reality, I’m just a piece of the puzzle,” Reid said. “I love Philadelphia. The fans, there is nothing like them. They have just been unbelievable. They’re fair. If we stink, they let us know we stink if we’re doing OK, they let us know we’re doing OK, but they’re always there. That support is phenomenal, absolutely phenomenal.”
