Here’s something that could potentially be of interest to Philadelphia Eagles fans. Former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky is receiving coaching interest from multiple teams, according to Adam Schefter:

ESPN football analyst Dan Orlovsky has confirmed receiving calls from NFL teams to gauge his interest in leaving the network for an offensive coaching job.

Sources tell ESPN that Orlovsky has been contacted by multiple teams this year — one year after the Green Bay Packers reached out to him about joining their offensive staff.

It’s unclear if the Eagles have interest in Orlovsky, who has becoming a rising star in the media landscape due to his football knowledge, but I think it’s safe to say he has interest in them.

Orlovsky’s wife is from Philadelphia and he lived in the city for several years before moving back to his home state of Connecticut. He’s shown a lot of love for Philly in the past:

Orlovsky has also made it clear that he’s a huge fan of Carson Wentz. He’s effusively praised the Eagles’ starting quarterback and has been quick to defend him from criticism:

The Eagles obviously have an offensive coordinator vacancy to fill. Could Orlovsky be the answer? It’d be a significant jump since he’s never coached at any level. His NFL experience solely comes from playing from 2005 through 2017.

Perhaps the Eagles can offer Orlovsky some kind of assistant spot on their staff. But he could always just opt to stay at ESPN. And when it comes to adding former quarterbacks to their coaching staff, the Eagles already have an in-house option to consider in Josh McCown.

Orlovsky is probably bound to make the jump to coaching at some point. It’ll be interesting to see where he lands.
