6:24 pm
head coach. >> yeah. >> the eagles made their decision on the neck head coach. not official yet because the guy still coaching. nfl sources told me that kansas city offensive coordinator doug pederson will be the next eagles head coach. pederson played here as the first quarterback under andy reid in 1999 and was the quarterback coach with the eagles in 2011 and 12. and when andy reid went to kansas city, he took pederson with him as his offensive coordinator. interestingly, howie roseman and peter derr son have the same agent. bob lamont who's also the agent for andy reid and more interesting he's the agent for offensive coordinator pat shurmur also interviewed for the job. nothing can be announced until after kansas city is eliminated from the playoffs. and i think the chiefs have a good chance of beating the patriots this weekend. so it might take awhile. peter derr son hired defensive coach and is looking at former lions jim schwartz as defensive coordinator. how about chip kelly? well he
