The Reds have agreed to a three-year extension with general manager Walt Jocketty, the team announced on Friday.

Jocketty, 60, joined the team as a special advisor in 2008 and later that year took over as general manager. Last season he was named Major League Baseball's Executive of the Year by the Sporting News, an award he also won in 2000 and 2004 when he was the Cardinals' GM.

Jocketty's original three-year deal was set to expire after the 2011 season. There had been a rumor that the Cubs would try to lure him, Tony LaRussa and Albert Pujols to Chicago. That was quickly shot down by Jocketty, who is now signed through the 2014 season.

"Since he's been here, Walt has vastly improved our baseball operations within the organization," Reds owner Bob Castellini said in a release from the team. "You can't develop a winning tradition without stability. Walt and his staff are doing good things here. We want to keep that momentum going."

His predecessor, Wayne Krivsky, was given just more than two years before he was replaced by Jocketty. And before Krivsky, Dan O'Brien was on the job for just two years before he was replaced when Castellini took over the team.
