Earlier on Thursday, Adam Schefter reported the Eagles are "turning their attention" to Tom Coughlin. Philadelphia is now set to meet with Coughlin for a second time during this search progress. The rumors are heating up:
#Eagles talks with Tom Coughlin have intensified, as well. This could all go down very quickly. He seems to have wrapped his head around it— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 14, 2016
There are "ongoing discussions" between Tom Coughlin and the #Eagles as we speak. Some questions to answer. But they are far down the line.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 14, 2016
My understanding is the #Eagles are set for a face-to-face meeting with Tom Coughlin today. Should be a lot more in-depth than last time.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 14, 2016
As of yesterday, the Eagles were reportedly expected to hire a new head coach within the next "24-48 hours" so maybe this is it. At the very least, it's clear the Eagles have serious interest in Coughlin. Otherwise they wouldn't be interviewing him for a second time.
Given how this coaching search has gone, Coughlin is still hardly a lock. This search has taken a lot of twists and turns. It was only yesterday when newly hired Giants coach Ben McAdoo was reportedly the front-runner for the Eagles job.
With that said, these new reports continue to make Coughlin look like a more realistic possibility.
