Reid Distances Himself From Agent’s Comments

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy ReidAndy’s Reid‘s agent stirred things up Saturday with his comments to reporters suggesting the head coach can keep his job as long as Jeffrey Lurie is in power.

Lurie quickly released a statement to separate himself from that notion. And on Sunday, Reid tried to do the same.

“I don’t get into any of that,” Reid said per Reuben Frank of CSN Philly. “I’m a one-day-at-a-time kind of guy, one year, one play, the whole deal. So that’s not how I operate. I don’t worry about all that.”

LaMonte sat down with a small gathering of media for nearly a half-hour Saturday and spoke boldly about his client’s accomplishments. Reid has two years remaining on his contract. LaMonte did not seem the least bit concerned about something getting done.

“I would say that’s of no concern because at that stage, it’s not like you are seeking re-election, you’re kind of a Professor Emeritus at some point, where you’ve done this so long. And unless there was an event unforeseeable that I don’t know about, I don’t know how that would ever happen,” he said.

Reid, via Frank,  said that he is not focused on his future.

“I think the best thing that Bob said was if and when it ever came down to that, it’s between Jeff and I, so I’m lucky, lucky to have him as an owner, and I respect that every day, but I don’t even go there,” said Reid.
