The NFL Playoffs are in full swing, but the focus for the Philadelphia Eagles remains squarely on the search for former head coach Chip Kelly's replacement. Here are the latest and most interesting Eagles coaching rumors and news for Thursday, January 14th.
Eagles Don't Land McAdoo
Yesterday, there were reports that Eagles wanted Giants OC Ben McAdoo. Even Adam Schefter sensed that McAdoo was the favorite. That may have been the case, but the Giants swooped in and promoted McAdoo to head coach. With McAdoo off the board, the Eagles are forced to keep searching.
No Coughlin Either
The Eagles were reportedly focused on hiring former Giants head coach Tom Coughlin.
