Eagles to Interview Bieniemy, McDaniels for Head Coaching Job
Earlier it was reported the Eagles will meet with Rams defensive coordinator, Brandon Staley.
Now they are set to meet with a pair of offensive minds.
The team has put in a request to interview a pair of offensive coordinators for its head coaching vacancy. One will be Eric Bieniemy of the Chiefs, according to Mike Garafolo. The second will be Josh McDaniels of the Patriots per The Athletic.
Bieniemy was with the Eagles during the 1999 season, under then head coach Andy Reid. Reid, of course served as the Eagles head coach for 14 seasons and Bieniemy has been a part of his staff in Kansas City. The Eagles hired Doug Pederson in 2016, from Reid's staff and could do the same with Bieniemy.
As for McDaniels, he will meet with Jeffrey Lurie on Sunday. The 44-year-old was the head coach in Denver for less than two seasons, going 11-17. He spent one season as the Rams offensive coordinator before landing back in New England.
McDaniels has begun recruiting the coaching staff he would hope to bring with him to Philadelphia if hired, according to sources with knowledge of those discussions. The meeting in Florida would be his first formal interview with the Eagles.
McDaniels was hired to be the Colts’ head-coach before the 2018 season, but changed his mind, resulting in the Colts hiring then Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich.
