JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Jacksonville Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio has signed a contract extension, a reward for winning his first playoff game.
Del Rio's length of contract and salary were not disclosed by the team Thursday, but the salary was expected to be a significant jump from the original five-year, $6.5 million contract he signed in 2003.
The Jaguars were 11-5 last year, beat Pittsburgh in the first round of the playoffs and then ended the season with a 31-20 loss at New England.
Del Rio already received one pay bump, getting a one-year extension after the 2005 season. That followed a 12-4 season and the franchise's first playoff berth since 1999.
Jacksonville is 45-35 in five years under Del Rio.
