Inside the Birds: Who’s Hiring the Eagles’ Assistants?
The Eagles have three position coach vacancies to fill and an offensive coordinator to hire.
Is Doug Pederson responsible for these hires, or will his dubious hiring history force the front office to take more authority?
Remember, it was Pederson who hired Gunther Brewer two years ago to replace Greg Lewis, then fired Brewer last offseason to promote Carson Walch, who's now been fired one year later.
Under Pederson's watch, the Eagles promoted Phillip Daniels to defensive line coach last year after firing Chris Wilson. Now, one year later, Daniel is out.
Why can't the Birds find stability in the coaching ranks despite making the postseason three straight times?
In the latest Inside the Birds, Eagles Insiders Adam Caplan and Geoff Mosher discuss Pederson's curious hiring history along with the names reportedly involved with current openings -- including USC's Graham Harrell -- and the thinking behind some of the candidates.
Caplan and Mosher also answer #AskITB questions about upgrading linebacker and the structure of the scouting department and give a quick Super Bowl preview.
