Smith's Agent Denies Coach And Bears Are Talking Extension
Contrary to a local radio report, the Bears and coach Lovie Smith have not entered into discussions regarding a contract extension, according to Matthew Smith, the coach's agent and son.
"Coach's only concern is bringing the Lombardi Trophy back to Chicago," Matthew Smith told the Tribune on Tuesday. "Any discussion regarding his contract would take place after the season."
WSCR-AM 670's Terry Boers, citing an anonymous source, first reported the Bears and Smith had started negotiations on a multi-year extension.
Lovie Smith signed a two-year contract extension in February 2011 that runs through the 2013 season.
Smith, now in his ninth season, owns a 75-58 record (4-1 this season) and is 3-3 in the playoffs during his tenure, including an appearance in Super Bowl XLI. He was the 2005 NFL Coach of the Year and owns three division titles.
