There’s been much ado about what the Eagles will do with their coaching structure on the defensive side of the football. Until yesterday, it was assumed that things on offensive side would remain stable, but that was before the announcement that current offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg will interview with the Oakland Raiders about their head coaching vacancy.
Mornhinweg has strong connections with new Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie from their days in Green Bay, and while he’s not believed to be the lead dog in the race, this is likely more than just a simple courtesy interview. The former Lions coach has also been linked to the opening in Indianapolis.
Personally, the better fit for Mornhinweg would be Indianapolis where the Colts play in the comfortable domed confines of Lucas Oil Stadium. You know, because there’s no wind. Boom–cheap shot.
If Mornhinweg leaves, the Eagles could opt to promote a current offensive assistant to offensive coordinator, or they could bring back a familiar face in Brad Childress. Oh, the excitment.
