Is Josh McDaniels the Favorite to Land the Eagles Job?
New England Patriots offensive coordinator and former Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels spent most of Sunday afternoon and into the evening interviewing for the Eagles vacant head coaching position, according to multiple reports.
Now it appears that he could be on the verge of becoming the teams next head coach. Geoff Mosher from Inside the Birds joined The Sports Bash on Monday and said that he believes that McDaniels is now the favorite to land the Eagles gig.
"It certainly sounds to me that Josh McDaniels is the leader in the clubhouse," Mosher said during 'Football at Four'. A source tells me the Eagles really want McDaniels."
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler echoed that by tweeting that McDaniels is a 'prime candidate', adding that Buccaneers defensive coordinator Todd Bowles also has some 'internal support'.
The 44-year-old McDaniels was a head coach once before in Denver, but was fired after less than two full seasons, going 11-17 during the 2009-10 seasons. McDaniels has gained notoriety for being the Patriots offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach during Tom Brady's tenure.
