FOX Sports’ Adam Caplan reports that the Eagles have interviewed Bears secondary coach Jon Hoke for their defensive coordinator vacancy. Hoke joins Packers safeties coach Darren Perry as known candidates for the Philly job.
Hoke may have a built-in edge over Perry because Chicago’s season is over. Perry’s Packers are still playing, and he can’t interview until after Super Bowl XLV.
Hoke’s interview took place on Monday. He is the second candidate to formally interview for the job previously held by Sean McDermott. Ex-Saints secondary coach Dennis Allen is the other, but he took the defensive coordinator position in Denver.
Hoke turned 56 last week. 2010 was his second season as the Bears’ defensive backs coach. He coached the Texans’ secondary from 2002 through 2008.
