Here are three reasons why Day makes a lot of sense for the Philadelphia Eagles.
While Riley deserves consideration for a chance to lead an NFL franchise, he’ll have to determine whether or not he wants to leave that kingdom he’s built for himself in Norman (and, quite possibly that seven million per year purse he’s earning at the collegiate level).
It isn’t definite that he’d be forced to take a pay cut, but it is indeed possible. In the meantime, while you mull that over, here are three of several reasons why Day makes sense for the Birds in 2021.
1. He’s been around pro-level talent at Ohio State already.
Maybe you haven’t noticed, but the Ohio State Buckeyes are sort of a farm system when it comes to the NFL. Remember when we all used to talk about how the Miami Hurricanes used to put first-rounders and future stars in the league regularly? Well, Ohio State and Alabama have become the Miami of this generation.
Day may not have coached an NFL team yet, but he’s groomed some of the game’s talented young stars, and that has to count for something.
