When FOX’s Brian Billick appeared Thursday on PFT Live, I asked the perfunctory question regarding whether he has heard from any of the teams looking for coaches. And he gave me the perfunctory (but polite) non-answer.
According to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com, the Eagles quietly interviewed Billick on Monday.
It confirms the new existence of a bizarro world when it comes to coaching discretion. In past years, there would have been no reason for Billick’s meeting to have remained secret. And, in past years, there would have been no reason for interviews with multiple college coaches to have been publicized.
Some believe that Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley is the favorite for the Philly job. The fact that Billick is secretly on the radar screen makes us wonder who else might be, too.
