Philadelphia Eagles release Pat Shurmur and two other coaches, per report

The Eagles are parting ways with some assistants.

The Philadelphia Eagles have released three former Chip Kelly assistants, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Caplan. The names include former offensive coordinator and interim head coach Pat Shurmur, outside linebackers coach Bill McGovern, and inside linebackers coach Rick Minter. All three coaches had been with the team since Kelly was originally hired in 2013.

The biggest name here is obviously Shurmur. After being named interim head coach, Shumur led the Eagles to a meaningless (and damaging) win over the New York Giants in Week 17. He interviewed for Philadelphia's vacancy but ultimately lost out to Doug Pederson. Some thought Shurmur might stay with the Eagles as offensive coordinator or quarterbacks coach, but the Eagles have reportedly already filled those positions with Frank Reich and John DeFilippo, respectively.

There's already been a report that the Los Angeles Rams are interested in Shurmur. He used to be the offensive coordinator for the Rams from 2009 through 2010.

Perhaps McGovern and/or Minter will reunite with Kelly on the San Francisco 49ers.
