We’ve been hearing for a couple months now that a new deal is coming for Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid, and after today’s game Reid was asked about reports that his contract extension could come this week.
But Reid says he doesn’t want to talk about it.
Although Reid stressed that he can “think of no better organization” than the Eagles, he says he doesn’t want to address talk that he’s close to completing a long-term contract extension. Eagles officials also refused to comment.
But while everyone remains tight-lipped, all indications are that Reid is staying put, continuing to coach the team he has led to a 105-66-1 record. The deal is expected to get done, even if Reid and the Eagles aren’t discussing it.
UPDATE: As a reader pointed out in the comments, the Eagles released a statement after today’s game that read, “We’re aware of the reports regarding Andy Reid’s contract. The organization has acknowledged earlier that it expects to extend his contract at some points in the near future. Beyond that, the organization has no further comment.”
At his press conference, Reid said, “I think there was a statement put out. I’m not going to add to it. I’ve told you before, I love it here in Philadelphia, the fans. There’s not any better organization. The statement was put out and that’s what it is.”
