Frank Reich is set to visit Philadelphia and meet with new Eagles head coach Doug Pederson about the team's offensive coordinator vacancy, according to a report from Howard Eskin. This new report lines up with an earlier report that indicates Reich will join Pederson's staff.
During his press conference on Tuesday, Pederson said he hasn't officially hired an offensive coordinator yet.
"To answer that, I’m still going through the evaluation process there," Pederson explained. "I haven't decided yet on an offensive coordinator. Interviewing a few people, and again, just evaluate that position. I know it's an important position."
Reich was the offensive coordinator for the Chargers over the past two seasons before being fired by San Diego in early January.
Mark Eckel of NJ.com reports that the offensive coordinator job is down to either Reich or Pat Shurmur. He also adds:
Whichever coach does not get the coordinator's position will be offered the quarterbacks coach position, according to the source who wished to remain anonymous because he was not authorized to speak on the subject.
The Los Angeles Rams have reportedly requested permission to interview Shurmur for their offensive coordinator job. The Eagles thought well enough of Shurmur to make him interim head coach and give an interview for the full-time job, but they might let him go to the Rams and keep Reich around instead.
