Seahawks defensive cooridinator Gus Bradley
The Philadelphia Eagles organization reportedly is set to conduct it's second interview with Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley on Tuesday (via Pro Football Talk).
Bradley, considered to be one of the top defensive minds in football, is a hot coaching candidate right now.
Thanks to his recent success in Seattle, the Eagles seem to be excited by the possibility of Bradley becoming their next head coach.
A disciple of the legendary Monte Kiffin, Gus Bradley earned his stripes immersed in the Tampa 2 style of defense.
A player’s coach, who thrives off of unique defensive game planning, Gus Bradley could end up becoming one heck of a ball coach.
That creative defensive mindset has helped turn Seattle's' defense into one of the leagues best.
What intrigues me most about Gus Bradley is that he is the exact opposite of what most organizations have been looking for this offseason when searching for a head coach.
Focusing strictly on the offensive gurus, many teams and fans seem to forget that a good head coach can come from either side of the ball. And by doing that, a lot of teams may have missed out on a potentially great candidate in Bradley.
Yes he is raw, and the Eagles would be rolling the dice if they decided to make him their next head coach. But the thought of that Eagles defense becoming a top 10 unit once again has to get the fans excited.
Hiring Gus Bradley will come down to do one thing. Do the Eagles think he is capable of running an organization, or do they simply think he is better off calling plays?
