Eagles coach Andy Reid wants to coach again next season.

Even if Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie fires him after Sunday's season finale at the New York Giants, Reid has no plans on sitting out the 2013 season or accepting a front-office job.

"I do want to coach (next season)," Reid said Friday in quotes provided by the team. "That's what I want to do."

Reid indicated that he has not yet discussed his status for next season with Lurie. Reid has one year remaining on the contract extension he signed in 2009 and is scheduled to earn $7 million.

Before the season began, Lurie refused to give Reid another extension and proclaimed that another 8-8 finish - the Eagles' record in 2011 - would be unacceptable. The Eagles are 4-11 heading into Sunday's game at MetLife Stadium.

If Reid is dismissed, he figures to have plenty of suitors. He would be a candidate for any of the other NFL coaching vacancies that are expected to come up after the season, especially San Diego and Cleveland.

"I'm excited about getting ready for these New York Giants," Reid said Friday. "That's where I'm at right now."

Sunday's game may also be the last one for several Eagles players, including quarterback Michael Vick.

Whoever the Eagles' coach is next season will need to decide if he likes Foles enough to make him the full-time starter or if Vick deserves another chance to lead the offense.

Vick is scheduled to make $15.5 million under the terms of the six-year, $100 million contract he signed before last season.

Vick said Friday that he would love to return to Philadelphia, but only if he's a starter.

"I believe in myself and I believe I have a lot of football left to play," Vick said in quotes provided by the team. "I want to be a starter in this league. I can't see myself not being a starter right now. I just feel like I have too much talent and too much to offer."

EXTRA POINTS: Rookie starters Fletcher Cox (defensive tackle) and Mychal Kendricks (outside linebacker) were declared out for Sunday's game with concussions. Backup tight end Evan Moore, who dropped a potential touchdown pass last Sunday against Washington, is doubtful with back spasms.
