49ers Reward GM Baalke With A Three-Year Extension

NFL via Getty Images(SANTA CLARA, Calif.) -- After a 13-3 season including a trip to the NFC Championship Game, the San Francisco 49ers have decided to give general manager Trent Baalke a three-year contract extension that will run through the 2016 season.

After the team went just 6-10 in 2010, Baalke made numerous key moves that led to their recent run of success. He hired NFL Coach of the Year Jim Harbaugh, signed All-Pro kicker David Akers, signed cornerback Carlos Rodgers, brought in safety Donte Whitner, and re-signed safety Dashon Goldson.

"Trent has distinguished himself as the man to direct our football operations for years to come," 49ers CEO Jed York said. "Since taking over as general manager last January, we have made great strides on the football field under Trent's leadership."

Baalke has been a part of the 49ers organization since 2005.
