The one downside to winning the Super Bowl is that your coaching staff almost always ends up getting raided, which is exactly what has happened to the Eagles over the past week.
Since winning the Super Bowl on Feb. 4, the Eagles have assistant QB coach Press Taylor, it looks like they're not in any hurry to replace Reich.(John DeFilippo) and their offensive coordinator (Frank Reich). Although the Eagles have already found DeFilippo's replacement in
As a matter of fact, they might not even replace Reich at all.
According to NFL.com, the Eagles "have no immediate plans" to hire an offensive coordinator. Instead of filling the job, the Eagles are reportedly planning to give more responsibility to two guys who are already on the coaching staff: Running backs coach Duce Staley and wide receivers coach Mike Groh.
The Eagles don't necessarily need to hire an offensive coordinator and that's because they still have the coach who's responsible for calling their plays: Doug Pederson. Although Reich has been the OC in Philadelphia for the past two seasons, Pederson has been calling the plays. With Reich out of the picture, it appears the Eagles are thinking about making Staley a de facto run game coordinator and turning Groh into a passing game coordinator.
With the coaching staff set up like that, Pederson would still call the plays, with input from both Staley and Groh.
Pederson already has the right quarterback in place, so it's very possible that the Eagles won't miss a beat in 2018 without an offensive coordinator.
