One of the reasons why Sirianni's candidacy is gaining stream per Kaye is the staff he could put together if he were to be hired.
Sirianni’s initial meeting with the Eagles on Tuesday went well, according to another person with knowledge of the situation. The second source said there is optimism about the staff that Sirianni could put together in Philadelphia.
While he does not call the plays for Frank Reich's Colts, he has been a big part of the teams success during his tenure in Indianapolis. The 39-year old was hired by Reich in 2018 after two years as the Chargers' quarterbacks coach.
The team also interviewed Saints defensive coordinator, Dennis Allen on Wednesday. He could be the last name the team meets with before making a decision on who will be the successor to Doug Pederson.
