Jim Washburn Fired & Replaced by Tommy Brasher

Eagles DL coach Jim Washburn was fired this morning by Andy ReidThe Eagles made a not so shocking announcement this morning when it was released that Andy Reid had relieved defensive line coach Jim Washburn of his duties and replaced him with the up until today retired Tommy Brasher. Brasher was the Eagles defensive line coach all the way back in 1985 and joined the Eagles again in 1999 with Andy Reid before he retired in 2005.

Washburn was said to have been a disruption in the locker room and was worse after Jason Babin was waived by the Eagles last week. Washburn was hired BEFORE Juan Castillo in 2011 and had implemented the Wide 9 scheme which will go away (thankfully). Washburn has been a bust with this scheme this season as it seemed to have regressed from last year when the Eagles had plenty of sacks. This is just another move made showing the time of Andy Reid in Philadelphia is coming to an end.
