In a twist that adds a little spice to Sunday night’s game between the Eagles and Cowboys, presumably outgoing Philly coach Andy Reid reportedly believes that he could be a candidate to coach in Dallas next year, if the Cowboys make a coaching change.
That’s the word from Mark Eckel of the Times of Trenton, who cites an “extremely reliable source, who is close to Reid.”
(Cough . . . agent Bob LaMonte . . . cough.)
“I know a lot of people think Andy is going to San Diego next year, and I can see that happening,” the source told Eckel. “But I keep hearing Dallas. I think he can end up with the Cowboys. As a matter of fact, I think he will end up with the Cowboys, if Jason is fired.”
In other words, if the source is LaMonte: “Hey, Jeff Lurie. If you fire Andy, you’re going to have to deal with him twice a year. So maybe you’d better not fire him.”That probably won’t be enough to get Lurie to stop short of firing Reid. But, hey, it’s worth a try.
