Eagles To Interview Nick Sirianni

The Eagles will interview Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni for their head coaching vacancy on Tuesday, a source tells Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Sirianni is a logical candidate for the Birds, who are looking for a coach that can get Carson Wentz get back on track. 

Sirianni, 39, spent five years with the Chargers before joining Frank Reich‘s Colts staff. The young OC guided the Colts through their transition period after Andrew Luck‘s retirement and kept things afloat in 2020 with Philip Rivers under center. Under Sirianni’s watch, Rivers completed 68% of his throws for 4,169 yards with 24 touchdowns against eleven interceptions. The Colts went on to make the playoffs, though they fell to the Bills in the Wild Card round.

    Colts steal the Eagles OC and now they want to return the favor. Not very inspiring…. SMH

    The Eagles don’t have a plan and I still standby for them to hire someone Old School!

    I’d imagine they were banking on John Harbaugh being fired after the Ravens lost

    This could be a good hire. Sirianni is familiar with Reich’s system but runs his own plays out of it, so it should be enough of a change to provide some new inspiration for Wentz/Hurts while retaining the language and overall scheme familiarities to help in the transition. Rivers apparently loves Sirianni, and that could indicate an ability to relate and manage other quarterbacks as well.
