While the Eagles' current offensive coordinator appears to be staying put, his predecessor has found a new city to call home. Earlier this afternoon, the Cleveland Browns (a.k.a. Philadelphia: Midwest Branch) announced that they had hired Brad Childress as their new offensive coordinator. The move obviously stems from the relationship Childress has with Cleveland's current head coach, Pat Shurmur, who was the Eagles quarterbacks coach under Childress from 2002-2005.

While this move isn't big news to most Eagles fans, it does mean that one more offensive coordinator option is off the market. However, the Raiders have already announced their decision to hire Denver's Dennis Allen as their new head coach. The Colts have also found their new man in Chuck Pagano. This means that Marty Mornhinweg, who is essentially out of options at this point, will likely stay put in Philadelphia for another year, sparing the Eagles from going through yet another frustrating search for a new assistant coach.
