The Dallas Cowboys have signed coach Wade Phillips to a three-year contract extension that runs through 2012, sources say.
The Cowboys picked up Phillips' option for 2010 and tacked on two more years, according to the source.
On Tuesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told ESPN he was working on a contract extension for Phillips that would extend beyond 2010.
Phillips won the first playoff game of his head-coaching career when Dallas beat the Philadelphia Eagles in a first-round game. It ended the Cowboys' 13-year streak without a playoff victory.
The team's season ended Sunday with a 34-3 loss at Minnesota.
Under Phillips, the Cowboys are 33-15 in the regular season and have claimed two NFC East titles in three seasons. This year, his defense allowed the fewest points in the NFC.
