Where’s Andy Reid headed? Are the Eagles close to setting up an interview with Bill O’Brien? And will Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly get a look from NFL teams? Here’s the latest buzz from around the league.
Now that we’re three days into the process, here’s an updated list of potential Eagles coaching targets.
The Bill O’Brien buzz is not going away. The Penn State head coach is strongly considering interviewing for an NFL job, according to a report. Plus, the latest on Chip Kelly and Mike McCoy.
The Eagles apparently like what they’ve seen from the 13-3 Falcons this season.
Earlier today, a report surfaced that they’d take a look at Atlanta offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter. And now, Jay Glazer of FoxSports.com reports that the team has asked for permission to interview Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan and special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong.
Yesterday, we brought you a report from Dan Pompei of the National Football Post, which suggested there’s “a good chance” of Jon Gruden becoming the next Eagles head coach.
And today, those rumors continue.
Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com reports that teams have quietly been in contact with Gruden’s representatives the past few weeks. And Gruden could start interviewing with teams as soon as today.
Who will be the next head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles? Here’s a list of names to get you started.

Add one more name to the list of potential Andy Reid replacements.
According to ESPN’s’ Chris Mortensen, Penn State’s Bill O’Brien is on the Eagles’ short list. O’Brien spent five years on the Patriots’ coaching staff, including one as offensive coordinator. Under trying circumstances, he led the Nittany Lions to an 8-4 (6-2 Big Ten) record in 2012.
An obvious question is: Why would O’Brien have taken the Penn State job if he planned on bolting for the NFL after one season?
With just two days left before the NFL’s firing and hiring season begins, the Saints and Sean Payton have agreed to a new contract.
Here’s a look at how that move affects the Eagles, plus an update on Penn State’s Bill O’Brien and a new name to consider from the college ranks.
