Another day, another name. With college-level big-shots Bill O'Brien, Brian Kelly and Chip Kelly out of the picture, the Philadelphia Eagles have added a Super Bowl-winning coach-turned-broadcaster to their list of potential candidates.
A league source said Sunday afternoon that the Eagles interviewed Billick last week and now consider him among the leading candidates to replace his good friend, Andy Reid, fired two weeks ago after 14 seasons as head coach of the Eagles.
Billick is the eighth known candidate the Eagles have interviewed for their head coaching job and the 13th overall known candidate.
So the key candidates right now appear to be Billick, Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. Also in the picture are Bruce Arians and Jay Gruden, who served as offensive coordinators in Indianapolis and Cincinnati, respectively, last season.
On to what else is being talked about in the league's most popular division:
