Eagles Chairman Jeffrey Lurie Says 8-8 Won't Bring Andy Reid Back

Philadelphia Eagles Chairman Jeffrey Lurie said Andy Reid would not be back for 2013 if the team finishes with an 8-8 record again this season, according to csnphilly.com.

After saying that he doesn’t "have a level or anything like that" to determine whether Reid returns in 2013 for his final year, Lurie was asked if another 8-8 season could save Reid’s job. "No, it would not," he said.

Lurie expanded, adding that last season's 8-8 result was far below expectations:

"Listen, you’ve just got to make the best decisions you can after the season," he said. "But as I said, 8-8 was unacceptable."

Reid's contract goes through 2013, but the Eagles' front office will re-evaluate whether or not to bring him back for the final year after the conclusion of the 2012 season.
