The longest tenured NFL head coach reportedly wants a new contract but his team seems reluctant to enter into talks at this time. According to thePhiladelphia Inquirer, Andy Reid‘s agent Bob LaMonte is looking to land the veteran head coach a contract extension. Reid has two seasons remaining on his current contract.
The Eagles owner, Jeffrey Lurie made it perfectly clear after the disappointment of the 2011 season that a repeat would not be tolerated. Lurie called last season, “unacceptable”. It was possible that Reid could have been released after last year, but he remains the team’s current head coach and has to be considered to be on one of the hottest coaching seats in the NFL.
Reid is the longest tenured head coach in the NFL, coaching the Philadelphia Eagles since 1999. He has amassed a .609 winning percentage. However, Reid has not won a playoff gamesince the 2008 season.
