  • Philadelphia Interviews Josh McDaniels For Head Coach Role

    The Philadelphia Eagles have added two new candidates to their list for potential head coach, as Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels was brought in for an interview Sunday, while a request has been made to speak with Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy. McDaniels has been through the rigor of interviewing for multiple franchises' head coach gigs since returning as New England's OC back in 2012. With Bieniemy also on the Eagles' list, it would appear that a move of officially having a new HC is at least a few days off. One of the biggest factors is likely how prospective coaches would handle the Carson Wentz/Jalen Hurts situation at QB, as the Philadelphia brass appears to be leaning toward keeping Wentz in the mix come '21.

  • Eagles Fire Doug Pederson

    Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson has been fired, according to a source. Pederson met with ownership again on Monday to discuss his future plans for the team and their offense in particular, but apparently the team's brass didn't like what they were hearing and were ready to move on after Pederson led the team for five seasons, including a Super Bowl win in 2016 over the Patriots. The Eagles went 4-11-1 and benched the struggling Carson Wentz late in the season in favor of rookie Jalen Hurts, who provided a spark down the stretch. A questionable decision to bench Hurts for Nate Sudfeld in the Week 17 regular season finale against Washington also wasn't a good luck for Pederson, and he reportedly wasn't convinced that Hurts was the franchise signal-caller heading into 2021. It's unclear if this move will improve Wentz's chances of sticking with the team moving forward.

  • Doug Pederson On Shaky Ground

    Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson's status is on shaky ground and he could be out as the head coach if owner Jeffrey Lurie is not confident about Pederson's vision for the team in their next meeting, according to sources. The two are expected to meet again early this week in Florida after discussions this past Tuesday didn't go well. Lurie's concerns go well beyond the struggles of quarterback Carson Wentz, ranging from personnel to the coaching staff's outlook. The Eagles went 4-11-1 in 2020, but Pederson led the team to its only Super Bowl title in 2017 and playoff berths each of the previous three seasons. Philadelphia finished 26th in scoring (20.9 points per game) and 28th in passing yards (207.9 per game) this season, with Wentz being benched in favor of rookie Jalen Hurts down the stretch. Wentz plans to ask for a trade this offseason because of a fractured relationship with Pederson, according to sources.
