The Eagles have parted ways with their 2nd staff member in as many weeks, but like last week's release of PR man Rob Zeiger, this one is also not related to football. Jeff McLane is reporting that the team has let go head of marketing Tim McDermott, who was the brother of former defensive coordinator Sean, who ironically holds that same role with tonight's opponent, the Carolina Panthers.
No reasoning was given for McDermott's departure, but the team said it was "amicable." McDermott himself also released a statement through the team.
"The Eagles and I have parted on amicable terms," McDermott said in a statement released by the Eagles. "I have nothing but good things to say about the Eagles and the people I worked with, and wish the team the best as I pursue some exciting opportunities."
McLane characterized it as a "firing," but given how both sides characterized it as amicable and that McDermott released a statement through the team, I almost wonder whether the next place we'll see him is Cleveland?
Either way, for fans I don't see how this really matters... But it's news I guess.
