The Eagles might want to come to the realization that they could be working with a different coaching staff in the near future.
The Philadelphia Eagles‘ coaching staff currently includes head coach Doug Pederson, defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz and offensive coordinator Frank Reich. That’s a trio that can be compared to some of the best in the league. Two of them are former players, and two of them have head coaching experience.
Their first year together forced them to face the ups and downs of developing a promising, young team. Schwartz’ defense shined at times and struggled at others. On the offensive side of the ball, under the tutelage of Pederson and Reich, quarterback Carson Wentz, at times, looked elite.
It was the year of inconsistency for the trio, but they appear as if they can excel together in future years. Philadelphia should be proud of their coaching staff, to say the least.
Unfortunately, it may not be the same trio on the sideline come next off-season. Schwartz received little interest this year from other teams in regards to their head coaching vacancies, but his past experience is bound to gain him a few suitors at some point. As for Reich, he received an interview from the Buffalo Bills. He’ll get a few more calls if Wentz excels this season.

Special Teams Coordinator Dave Fipp has done an amazing job for this team, and he’s expected to receive some well-deserved interest at some point. He’s, arguably, been the best special teams coordinator in the NFL since joining the Eagles in 2013.
It isn’t just the coordinators who are receiving interest. Quarterbacks coach, John DeFilippo was offered an interview from the New York Jets to be their offensive coordinator. Eagles owner Jeffery Lurie disallowed that from happening, but expect DeFilippo to continue to receive those requests in the future.
Running backs coach Duce Staley is quickly making a name for himself for the job he’s doing with the Eagles. Don’t count him out of any discussions either. Needless to say, the Eagles have quite a few coaches who are not only deserving of a promotion, but could very well get one.
If you’re a fan of the Eagles, you may have seen some of this coming. It may be time for the team to do their research on coordinator options and position coaches. Long-tenured coaches are becoming a commodity in the NFL. Philadelphia has a few of their own. Teams may want to add some quality talent to their organization. The Eagles may be approaching a shakeup in the coching ranks. We can only hope any change doesn’t affect the team too much.
