A report over the weekend had the Eagles targeting Steve Spagnuolo as the defensive coordinator on Doug Pederson’s staff, but hiring him was far from a slam dunk because Spagnuolo still has a contract to do that job for the Giants.
Word from Jersey was that the Giants wanted to keep Spagnuolo, who would need permission from the Giants to pursue the Philly opening, and it appears they’ll be doing that. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Spagnuolo is expected to remain in place for Ben McAdoo’s first season as head coach.
While McAdoo and Spagnuolo will return and Mike Sullivan is expected to move from offensive coordinator to quarterbacks coach, it looks like there will be a lot of turnover elsewhere on the staff. According to various reports, defensive line coach Robert Nunn, offensive line coach Pat Flaherty and strength and conditioning coach Jerry Palmeiri will be leaving their jobs and wide receiver coach Sean Ryan, linebackers coach Jim Herrmann and special teams assistant Larry Izzo have already left for other teams.
Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reports that former Rams offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti is a possibility at quarterbacks coach.
