With the firing of Andy Reid looming, it has been noted that the Philadelphia is activity looking for a head coach as we speak. "We have a short list of guys that we are pursuing. We are really happy with the interest in our team." Team owner Jeffery Lurie told reporters Sunday night.
Among that short list is former head coach Andrew "Andy" Reid, who spent 14 years with his previous team. Howie Roseman told Eagles Beat reporter, Tim McManus, "We feel he fits everything we are looking for in a long term coach. We saw what he did with his last team and we are excited to see what he can do here."
With a long list of possible suitors for Reid it may be a tough get. "Reid is in high demand, and we know that, so we are going to put our best foot forward in getting him here, ASAP." Said Rosman of the veteran coach. "After the disappointment we suffered over the last 14 years we strongly believe that Reid will be a breath of fresh air in the locker room and the city of Philadelphia."
Hiring a new coach is a very arduous process but it seems as if the Eagles brass have been doing their homework. "We have been watching Andy (Reid) over the past few years and we are very impressed with what we see." A team official told McManus. "We have to find the guy that will turn our team around right now, and he could very well be that guy. He fits everything we want as a head coach here in Philly."
Only time will tell, but it sounds like there is an overwhelming favorite in the Philadelphia organization. We, at Here We Go Radio, don't know very much about Reid but we will be sure to look into his credentials and report back. But for now, rest easy Eagles Fans, we are finally getting the change we so desperately wanted.
