leave a comment »

Philadelphia Eagles Coach Andy Reid, a former football player at Glendale Community College,  signed a three-year contact extension through 2013 on Wednesday.

Additional details of the deal were not unveiled during a press conference Wednesday morning.

Reid, who is the winningest coach in team history (115 victories and a .611 winning percentage), has guided the Eagles to the playoffs seven times.

Since taking over the head-coaching duties in 1999, Reid has piloted the Eagles to five appearances in the NFC title game and one trip to the Super Bowl.

Reid said he understands the lofty expectations put on him by a demanding fan base.

The Eagles have not won a championship since 1960.

“I love Philadelphia, the fans have been unbelievable,” Reid said during a press conference. “They’re fair. If we stink, they let us know. If we’re doing OK, they tell us.”
