Eagles Fire Secondary Coach Johnnie Lynn

After just one season in charge of the Eagles secondary, Johnnie Lynn is done. It was reported today by CBS' Clark Judge that he was fired by the team. As anyone who reads the site knows, I'm always somewhat skeptical of just how much influence position coaches have either way, but certainly you can say that Lynn's unit did not perform to expectations.

The Eagles secondary allowed 27 passing TDs, which is only four fewer than the disastrous total of last season. We also saw Nnamdi Asomugha struggle over the first half of the season picking up the Eagles zone coverages. Certainly that could be seen as an area where the secondary coach could have been better.

Lynn is the first coach to get the ax following the Eagles disappointing 8-8 season. You would think that more than just the secondary coach would lose his job after a season the owner deemed "unacceptable," so we'll obviously have our eyes and ears open for more moves.

As to what this could mean or Juan Castillo? If the Eagles did not want to fire him, you could maybe see a scenario here where he is moved to a positional coach spot to make room for a new defensive coordinator... like say, Steve Spagnuolo?!
