The Philadelphia Eagles’ offensive coordinator search has gone really quiet but it sounds like we might have some clarity on the situation by the end of next week. At least, that’s what John Clark is reporting:
Source says Eagles expect to announce their coaching staff by the end of next week— John Clark (@JClarkNBCS) January 29, 2020
There may be a few interviews after Super Bowl. I’m told Doug Pederson has interviewed many candidates and has taken a very methodical approach to find the best coaches for his staff#Eagles pic.twitter.com/dFwb3WfCZX
This Thursday will mark three weeks since the Eagles officially dismissed former offensive coordinator Mike Groh and wide receivers coach Carson Walch. A number of rumored Groh replacements have reached dead ends. There’s been no real talk on who might replace Walch. Perhaps the Eagles are eyeing assistants from the Kansas City Chiefs and/or the San Francisco 49ers?
In addition to these offensive vacancies, the Eagles are undergoing changes at defensive line coach and defensive backs coach. Despite never previously coaching defensive linemen, Matt Burke is rumored to be replacing Phillip Daniels’ old job. The Eagles reportedly hired Marquand Manuel to replace Cory Undlin.
The Eagles are also bound to officially announce some front office changes. Nothing too major, I’d presume, but it seems like there’s going to be a role announced for Brent Celek given how he’s been spotted at the Senior Bowl and such. We’ll also see if the Eagles replace former vice president of football operations Andrew Berry, who was hired away to be the new Cleveland Browns’ general manger, in some capacity.
The Eagles didn’t finalize their 2019 coaching staff and front office changes until late February last year. So, at least we won’t have to wait that long this time around? Hopefully?
