It’s a virtual certainty that Andy Reid will be out as Eagles coach after his team completes this horror show that is the 2012 season. But where he may land next might surprise you.
Yes, Dallas. It’s probably true that Jerry Jones isn’t particularly impressed with what he has seen from Reid’s Eagles this season, but did watch the depleted Eagles take the Cowboys to the limit last night as a double-digit underdog. Reid has also dominated the Cowboys during his 14-year stint in Philadelphia, compiling a 17-11 overall record against Dallas despite going 0-2 this season.
Sources tell Mark Eckel of The Trenton Times that Reid would be a candidate for the job should it become available after the season.
From the report:
According to an extremely reliable source, who is close to Reid, the long-time Eagles head coach could be the head coach of the archrival Cowboys next year.
“I know a lot of people think Andy is going to San Diego next year, and I can see that happening,” the source said. “But I keep hearing Dallas. I think he can end up with the Cowboys. As a matter of fact, I think he will end up with the Cowboys, if Jason is fired.”
It’s interesting thought, but it’s unlikely to happen. San Diego remains the most likely landing spot for Reid if he returns to coaching next season, but stay tuned.
