If the Eagles plan to make a play for Jim Mora as the franchise’s next defensive coordinator, they’d be wise to do so very soon.
Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post reports that Mora is close to becoming the next defensive coordinator of the Broncos.
Mora served as head coach of the Seahawks in 2009, after two seasons as an assistant under Mike Holmgren. Before that, Mora spent three years as head coach of the Falcons.
Per the Post, Mora nearly became defensive coordinator of the Panthers under new Broncos coach John Fox in 2003, after Jack Del Rio was hired out of the position to become head coach of the Jaguars.
It would be Mora’s first stint in the AFC since he spent seven seasons with the Chargers, from 1985 through 1991.
