After interviewing Bills WR coach Sanjay Lal on Wednesday, the Eagles are continuing their search to fill their WR coach vacancy. Adam Caplan of ESPN reports the next on their list is current Rams WR coach Mike Groh.
With Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay taking their head coaching job yesterday, Groh and other Rams assistants are likely done in Los Angeles.
Though the Rams offense was wholly unimpressive in 2016, Groh has some solid resume bullet points. In 2016 Kenny Britt had his first 1000 yard season. Groh was the Bears WR coach from 2013-2015, where he coached Alshon Jeffrey to the best seasons of his career. His previous stop was two years as the WR coach at Alabama, where he saw a 1000 yard 11 TD freshman season by Amari Cooper in 2012.
Groh is the son of Al Groh, who spent one year as Jets head coach as Bill Belichick’s replacement after Belichick resigned one day after replacing Bill Parcells.
