Andy Reid is no longer the head coach of the Eagles.
After 14 seasons that pushed the organization to new heights but never to the summit, Jeffrey Lurie finally parted ways with the man that will be widely considered the best Eagles head coach of all time.
Lurie made it official Monday after weeks of speculation. His press conference, originally scheduled for noon, has been moved to 1 p.m.
“Andy Reid won the most games of any head coach in Eagles’ history and he is someone I respect greatly and will remain friends with for many years to come,” Lurie said in a statement. “But, it is time for the Eagles to move in a new direction. Andy leaves us with a winning tradition that we can build upon. And we are very excited about the future.
“The search for the new coach of the Philadelphia Eagles will begin immediately.”

The Eagles had a change of heart today and have come to an agreement with Mike Patterson, agent J.R Rickert told Tim McManus.
“I’m pleased that the Eagles and Howie Roseman in particular were able to work on this with us and come to a resolution,” Rickert said. “I attribute the long-standing relationship we have had over the years as the reason we were able to do it.”
A league source tells McManus that Patterson will receive the full $150,000.
