The next Philadelphia Eagles head coach will NOT be Arthur Smith.
The Eagles interviewed Smith on Thursday night. They were said to be “really impressed” with him.

Here’s a recap of where things stand with the Eagles’ coaching search:
The Eagles are now one of four teams remaining with a head coaching vacancy. The three others are: the Detroit Lions, the Houston Texans, and the Los Angeles Chargers. From that group, word is that Dan Campbell is the favorite for the Lions’ job. It’s not perfectly clear who the Texans and Chargers are targeting.
Nor the Eagles for that matter. We’ll soon see if a favorite comes into focus for Philly.
