PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Philadelphia Phillies announced Thursday that manager Charlie Manuel has signed a two-year contract extension. Manuel is now signed through the 2013 season.

“We are pleased to have come to terms with Charlie,” Senior Vice President & General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. “He has been an integral part of the success we’ve had over the past several years. There was little doubt that he was going to continue to be our skipper past his current contract and we look forward to the next three years with the hopes of continued success.”

During Manuel’s tenure as manager (2005-10), the Phillies have had the best record among all National League teams at 544-428. He has led the club to four consecutive division titles (2007-10), two NL pennants (2008-09) and one World Series Championship (2008).

Overall, Manuel has a career managerial record of 764-618. During the postseason, he is 27-19, which is tied for the third-most wins among active managers.
