USC offensive coordinator Graham Harrell won’t leave the school to take on the same role with the Eagles, Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports (on Twitter) hears. It’s not clear whether Harrell would have gotten the job in Philly, but he was among the coaches on their radar.
The Eagles bounced Mike Groh earlier this month, shortly after head coach Doug Pederson inadvertently told reporters that he’d be staying on board. Since then, they’ve seen Ravens quarterbacks coach James Urban decline their request for an interview and ex-Redskins OC Kevin O’Connell accept the same job with the Rams.
It’s not clear where the Eagles will go from here. They’ve been connected to Chiefs quarterbacks coach Mike Kafka, but they’ve yet to schedule an interview.
Harrell became USC’s OC last year after Kliff Kingsbury left for the Cardinals. In 2019, USC ranked 20th last season with 454 yards per game, improving significantly from its 382.6 average in 2018.
