So maybe extend the pier about 9 or 10 inches. Do you think this would work if I drill some holes in the existing pier, rebar it, and use a bonding agent?

That's what I would do. As a bonus, you can go with a wet post base connector.

This is looking like a better idea than going the below grade route.

It is not ok to just pour. The new section has to be tied into the existing, which is where the rebar comes in.
