Eagles "going in a different direction"-- Sun Dec 30 8:10 pm --
Reid firing expected on Monday
Two sources confirmed owner Jeffrey Lurie has told Andy Reid he's going in a different direction. Reid is out as Eagles head coach. (Reuben Frank on Twitter)
FF Today's Take:This has been expected since the roof starting caving in on Philly at midseason, making it impossible for the coach to deliver on Lurie's preseason statement that the Eagles had to make the playoffs. Oregon's Chip Kelly has been linked to this job for some time, but don't be surprised if this is the opportunity that brings former Eagles assistant Jon Gruden out of the Monday Night Football booth. Former Patriots assistant and current Penn St. HC Bill O'Brien is also reportedly in play.
