The Philadelphia Eagles' head coaching search is full underway now. Early Tuesday, we found out that not one but three Atlanta Falcons assistants are on the team's interview list, and now it appears two even bigger names can officially be thrown on there. 

CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher has details on reports that the Eagles will be interviewing Penn State head coach and Bill Belichick disciple Bill O'Brien (per the Harrisburg Patriot-News) as well as Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy (per Jason La Canfora).

Meanwhile, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Chip Kelly is still the team's top target, yet Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone is also someone they like

As you can tell, the wheels are spinning quickly here. We'll likely catch wind of a few more names before this process even kicks into top gear, so be prepared for the rumor mill to be dominated by Eagles-related speculation in the coming weeks. 

On to what else is being talked about in the league's most popular division...
