The Philadelphia Eagles search for their next offensive coordinator has taken them to the college ranks with USC Trojans offensive coordinator Graham Harrell set to interview for the position.

According to The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Jeff McLane, Harrell is interviewing with Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson today to possibly join the team as the Eagles’ offensive coordinator.

The Trojans hired Harrell last year after Kliff Kingsbury left as offensive coordinator to become the Arizona Cardinals’ head coach. The 34-year-old previously worked at North Texas (2016-’18) as its offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

USC’s offense averaged 335.8 passing yards and 27.8 points per game under Harrell’s direction.

Just a decade after setting collegiate passing records at Texas Tech, the young coach is quickly becoming a popular name in coaching circles. Harrell signed a multi-year extension with the Trojans in December following his outstanding success in his first season.
