Top 5 candidates to replace Doug Pederson as Eagles’ head coach
Feb. 15, 2024 – 15:12 – NFL rumors leading up to the conclusion of the 2020 season indicated that the Philadelphia Eagles might fire Doug Pederson. It did look for a while after they finished up shop on a disastrous four-win campaign that Pederson would be retained.
That’s obviously not going to be the case. The Eagles announced on Monday, more than a week after their humiliating season finale, that they have indeed fired Doug Pederson. It is somewhat of a shocker given that he’s just a few years removed from leading Philadelphia to its first-ever Super Bowl title.
With that said, a rift seemed to be growing between Pederson and Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie. After a meeting earlier on Monday, Philadelphia’s top dog decided to part ways with Pederson after five seasons. Now, NFL rumors are going to focus on who the Eagles might bring in to be their next head coach. Here’s a look at the top-five candidates.
