Steve Spagnuolo Would Be Open To Eagles Return According To Report

via static.foxsports.com

And the winner for the reporter to first get our hopes way up this offseason is... Les Bowen! He spoke to a source close to the former Rams head coach who said that he does plan to coach next year and that he would be interested if there were an opening in Philadelphia.

Sometimes when a coach is fired with a year left on his deal, he prefers to sit back and watch, maybe do a little TV work, collecting the paycheck. A source close to Spagnuolo said today that is not Spags' mindset. The source said Spagnuolo, 52, expects to coach in the NFL next season, and would be interested in any opening that might occur with the Eagles.

But of course, as of right now, there is no opening for a defensive coordinator job in Philadelphia. That said, Spags reported interest could change that.

As we've noted earlier, Spags still has a home in Philadelphia, his wife is from here and despite earlier reports, he and Andy Reid are good friends. Plus, this is where he learned his whole philosophy under his mentor Jim Johnson. So there could certainly be some motivation to follow in his teacher's footsteps.

Ex-Eagle and current Ram Quintin Mikell spoke with Tim McManus earlier today and endorsed the idea of Spags coming back to Philly.

"If he does come back he will be a great asset to the Eagles. And I think he deserves the Assistant Head Coach title, too," said Mikell
