On Football Night in America, I said that outgoing Eagles coach Andy Reid would love to coach the Chargers, but that it isn’t known whether the Chargers would love Andy Reid to be their coach.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, it’s not happening.
Per Schefter, the Chargers plan to go in a different direction. That makes sense, for a couple of reasons. First, the Chargers likely don’t want to pay Reid the kind of money to which he is accustomed. Second, the Chargers likely don’t want to give Reid the kind of power to which he is accustomed.
And so Reid will land elsewhere, if he lands anywhere, in 2013. Some think that, when the music stops, there won’t be a chair for Andy, who remains under contract with the Eagles for one more year — and who in turn will be paid his full salary in 2013.
