Eagles’ statement on their search for a new head coach

In the wake of Brian Kelly deciding to stay at Notre Dame:

“There is no question we spent a considerable amount of time and effort looking at who we thought were the best collegiate candidates for our head coaching job. We did so knowing that there was a remote chance that these coaches would leave their current posts. We understood that going into the process, but we wanted to leave no stone unturned while trying to find the best head coach for the Philadelphia Eagles. We have no regrets about the effort we made in that direction and we will continue to proceed as planned in our search.”



  1. Jerrys point says:

    Eagles are taking the Skins place as the new 4th seed in the NFC EAST!

  2. Dan in Philly says:

    Translation: people who run billion dollar industries looking for a new lead man, effectively a new CEO, spokesman, handler of the players in whom we put hundreds of millions, should probably take time to make sure they are picking the right man.

    1. Hope says:

      Taking more time doesn’t equal a right man will be pick.

      Big corporations like Apple and other billion dollar companies usually have a guy in place when a CEO resign. (They planned ahead)

      Also teams usually have a list of coaches in line that fit the team philosophy and not randomly pick people (offensive mind, defensive mind, spread offense….) to interview.

      Also head coach needs time to build the staffs and perpare for the draft. They need to pick the right players that fit the new scheme.

      I guess no one know if Eagles have a plan or not and they still have 3 months before the draft. Wait and see

    With the success of Pete Carrol and Jim Harbaugh (and too a lesser extent Greg Schiano), it would be remiss for the Eagles organization to ignore these college cannidates. AND if Lurie and Roseman learned something in these interviews… like what to look for in a QB or what a contemporay offense looks like, this was not a failed endeavor. Additionally, they had to do something, while we wait for the Playoff teams loose so we can poach one of those team’s coordinaters.

    Translation: “Hmm, I wonder if Steve Spurrier wants a second shot.”

    Every year the Eagle’s manage to ignore a position that seems important the success of the team as a whole. Now we will push the limits and see if ignoring the HC position can save a few dollars. Most likely 4 wins can be achieved with no direction or planning, so it isnt really a step backwards.

  7. Dez Bryant's Probation Officer says:

    Bring them in, check them out. If they don’t thrill you, don’t hire them. None of these college coaches have been of interest to me (as a Eagles fan), so I’m glad they didn’t get hired.

    And each of the college coaches end up with a big contract enhancement, so they should be happy with the experience.
    So it’s a win.

  8. corn on the Kolb says:

    Translation: After trying to put our players into a position to succeed for nearly a decade and a half, we’ve decided to put ourselves into one too. Relax.

  9. SteveH says:

    Translation: Gus Bradley or bust now.

  10. The Reddgie says:


    “Ohhhh shit.”

  11. Mandmeisterx says:

    Translation: Have no fear! There is still Jim Kelly, Kelly Kapowski, and former Buc’s CB Brian Kelly.

  12. Hope says:

    Translation: We thought the Eagles head coach position was very attractive but no college coaches want to come…. why? Maybe we overestimated our coaching vacancy.

  13. bula says:

    Translation:”Although we’ve been very impressed with all of the college coaches that we’ve interviewed, we really like this Gus Bradley guy. Colleges around the country can rest assured that their coaches will be returning because we are all in on Gus”

  14. Translation: the aimless putzing around will continue

    Damn jimmy…hope you get better.

    Hope your team never hires a coach and promotes its OL coach.
