    Bob LaMonte, agent for Eagles coach Andy Reid, said Saturday that team owner Jeffrey Lurie has repeatedly told LaMonte that Reid will coach the team as long as Lurie owns it, making the issue of a contract for Reid less pressing than if might seem, as Reid enters the next-to-last season of his current deal. Reid, entering his 14th season, is the longest-tenured current NFL coach, and is both the winningest coach in Eagles history and the longest to serve. His agent was making his annual visit to Lehigh. "He's very much at peace with this organization and this football team, and I think he's very positive," LaMonte said. "I think he feels confident in his staff, confident in ownership, probably, they've been together so long. There's kind of a comfort zone -- everybody's doing the things that are right. And when you come to work every day and everybody's doing the things that are right, it gives you a great comfort."
