    Lovie Smith Gets Contract Extension Through 2013

    All signs Thursday pointed toward Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith receiving a contract extension sooner rather than later.

    Now, it's official.

    Smith and the Bears agreed to a two-year contract extension Friday, the financial terms of which were not immediately announced. This will keep Smith with the Bears through the 2013 season, rewarding him for this year's unexpected appearance in the NFC title game.

    "Of course I feel great about the extension," Smith said from the NFL scouting combine.

    The new deal also runs the same length as that of general manager Jerry Angelo.

    "Jerry and I work together well," Smith said. "We feel like we're a good combination."

    Good! I was really upset last year when they were thinking about firing Lovie. He is arguably the best coach the Bears have had since Ditka.

I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    There is no argument. The Bears have been to the playoffs more times under Smith than Wanstedt and Jauron combined.
