Via Profootballtalk:

The Philadelphia Eagles have announced that long-time coach Andy Reid has signed a three-year contract extension.

Reid is now committed to the team through 2013.

He arrived as head coach way back in 1999.  The choice was a bit of a surprise at the time, given that he had never served as an offensive coordinator.

Reid's 11-year run with the Eagles ranks second in the NFL behind Jeff Fisher of the Titans, who has been coach of the franchise since 1994, when it was in Houston and named the Oilers.

Reid also is the longest-serving coach in franchise history.  In second place is Earle "Greasy" Neale, who coached the team from 1941 through 1950.

Reid and Eagles chairman Jeffrey Lurie will meet with the media at 11:30 a.m. ET Wednesday.

Reports of negotiations regarding an extension first surfaced earlier this season, possibly in an effort to avoid a media and/or fan outcry for Reid to be fired if the team were to again lapse into a November swoon.  Consecutive losses to the Cowboys and Chargers dropped the Eagles to 5-4 as of November 15, but three straight victories have propelled them to 8-4. 

The Eagles currently are tied with the Cowboys for first place in the NFC East.  The Giants, who host the Eagles on Sunday night, are in third place with a 7-5 record.
