PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles offensive coordinator Brad Childress signed a three-year contract extension Friday that will keep him in Philadelphia through
the 2008 season.
Childress' squad helped lead the Eagles to their first Super Bowl appearance in 24 years, a 24-21 loss to the New England Patriots last Sunday.
Childress joined the Eagles as quarterbacks coach on Jan. 12, 1999 -- one day after Andy Reid was named head coach -- and was responsible for teaching
the West Coast offense to then-rookie quarterback Donovan McNabb.
Childress, 48, was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2002. The Eagles set a team record with 415 points that year, despite losing McNabb and backup
Koy Detmer to injuries. Third-stringer A.J. Feeley compiled a 4-1 record down the stretch.
