It’s no secret that Andy Reid won’t return as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013. He was essentially put on probation by his owner Jeffrey Lurie heading into this season, as Lurie stated another 8-8 season was unacceptable.
Considering the Eagles are 4-10 and in last place in the entire NFC, it’s safe to say Reid hasn’t fulfilled his end of the bargain. The Eagles suffered through an embarrassing eight-game losing streak midseason, the longest the franchise has seen since 1968.
It’s expected that the entire coaching staff is wiped clean for 2013, as there’s no young head coach in the waiting to be found on this team. The Eagles will likely go one of two directions—they could bring in a veteran head coach to their team, one that has had experience leading a squad previously. Or they could try to find the next great, young coach by going after a coordinator somewhere around the league.
