Doug Pederson has parlayed the Eagles’ Super Bowl victory last season into a long-term deal, as the team announced Sunday his contract has been extended through 2022.

The team also announced that executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman’s contract has also been extended through that same period.

“We are thrilled to solidify continuity in our organization’s leadership with the extensions of Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman, whose collaborative partnership helped deliver our city its first Super Bowl Championship,” team Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie said in a statement. “Doug and Howie are committed to the success of our franchise by ensuring that we remain competitive, both in the short and long term. That unified vision for the future of our team is what gives us the best chance to win moving forward.”

Pederson is now 20-12 in his two seasons in Philadelphia, including last season’s 13-3 mark. Last year, he helped the Eagles overcome injuries to several key players, including quarterback Carson Wentz, to win their first Super Bowl. He became just the eighth head coach in NFL history to win the Super Bowl within his first two seasons as a head coach.

Earlier this year the team had picked up Pederson’s option to keep him through 2020.

Roseman’s Super Bowl winning season won him several accolades. He was voted 2017 Executive of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America, and Sporting News named him NFL Executive of the Year. His personnel moves, notably his signing of Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles, were essential in helping the Eagles rise to the top of the sport.
