A number of sources are reporting that the Eagles interviewed Minnesota Vikings DB coach Joe Woods today for their vacant defensive coordinator position. The 40 year old has been coaching the Vikings secondary for 5 seasons and previously worked as a quality control coach for Tampa Bay under Jon Gruden. He also has 12 years of experience coaching at the college level.

Woods has certainly worked under a number of a great coaches. In Tampa Bay he was under Gruden and Monte Kiffin, he was hired by Mike Tomlin in Minnesota when Tomlin was defensive coordinator there, and for the past few seasons he's been working under Leslie Frasier (and Brad Childress I suppose).

Otherwise, as a position coach for a relatively short amount of time in the NFL there's not a whole lot to judge him on. It's certainly good that the Eagles are getting guys in this week and seeing what is out there, but it seems like it might be a bit early in his NFL career for Joe Woods to be a serious contender for the job.

Les Bowen also cites a team source that says the Eagles will look to interview at least one coach from one of the Superbowl teams after this Sunday. If you missed our story about Packers LB coach/Asst head coach Winston Moss campaigning for the job, check it out.
