The Eagles have two more current coordinators on their radar for their head coaching vacancy.

ESPN’s Dan Graziano reports Philadelphia has requested to interview Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith. And ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio reports the club has requested to interview Buccaneers defensive coordinator Todd Bowles.

Philadelphia also requested to interview 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh and team owner Jeffrey Lurie mentioned Eagles assistant head coach/running backs coach Duce Staley is also a likely candidate.

Smith has drawn interest from every team in search of a head coach this offseason. He’s been the Titans’ offensive coordinator since 2019, following Matt LaFleur’s departure to become Green Bay’s head coach.

Detroit and Atlanta have requested interviews with Bowles, who compiled a 24-40 record in four seasons with the Jets.

Philadelphia fired Doug Pederson on Monday.

  1. Now if the Eagles hire a minority candidate as HC or OC, they will receive 2 compensatory 3rd round picks in the next two drafts. Remember Howie and Jeff spouting about “volume” of picks. Do you think this could be their “strategic vision” to replensish the team?

    Of course this is the intended action. Howie screwed the team financially for a few years chasing nostalgia and due to tied hands with the market. Now we have a lot of money spent and nothing to show for it. We need a LOT of youth and a lot of players. So yes, give Staley his shot as the HC for 1-2 seasons while you stock up and thats his 2yr try-out for experience and extending it further if he does well.

  3. If I am Arthur Smith I don’t leave for any job but the LA Chargers gig. They have all the pieces to win and can get more in this years draft and free agency.
