The Boston Red Sox have signed CEO/president Larry Lucchino to a contract extension ensuring that he will be with the club in 2013, according to principal owner John Henry. Lucchino has been with the Red Sox since 2001 when the current ownership group bought the club.

His current contract is set to expire at the conclusion of the 2012 season. Henry announced the extension on a radio appearance with Mut & Merloni of WEEI in Boston. As of this time, its unclear as to how long the extension is for.

Earlier on Thursday, Lucchino expressed an interest in staying with the club.

"This is the place I call home," he said. "I hope to be here for the foreseeable future. I've got no plans to go anywhere else. I enjoy my working relationship with my partners and colleagues and the challenge that faces us here is a tremendous one. In some ways, and this may sound perverse, it's appealing."
