The Eagles, continuing a trend of firing people who aren’t necessarily the problem, have gotten rid of their PR man.
Apparently Juan Castillo couldn’t be fired again, so they dispatched senior vice president of communications Rob Zeiger Tuesday, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. His name was already removed from the team’s website Tuesday night.
Zeiger was the liason between owner Jeff Lurie, the front office and the media, the guy left to explain things to the public.
Neither the team nor Zeiger commented on the decision.
In many places, PR directors are long-term fixtures, but not in Philadelphia. Zeiger had just started in May 2011, and they had gone through three others in 10 years.
Call it a hunch, but we’re guessing he’s not the last high-level Eagles employee to leave before the start of next season.
