LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears signed coach Lovie Smith to a four-year contract extension through the 2011 season Wednesday night.
The team also signed general manager Jerry Angelo to a contract extension through the 2013 season.
The Bears will hold a news conference Thursday and said the team would have no further comment Wednesday night.
Smith, the 2005 NFL coach of the year, led the Bears to a 15-4 record and their first NFC championship in more than two decades last season before they lost 29-17 to Indianapolis in the Super Bowl.
