Today the Philadelphia Eagles front office staff is meeting with the Seattle Seahawks Defensive Coordinator Gus Bradley for the second time in hopes of hiring him as the new Head Coach. Bradley met with the Eagles once already and flew into Philadelphia today to sit down for a follow-up interview. Bradley is scheduled to interview with the Jacksonville Jaguars in regards to their opening tomorrow if terms are not agreed upon today.
It’s also being reported that with Ken Wisenhunt being interviewed the other day by the Eagles brass that he was not only being interviewed for a possible Head Coaching position but as a possible Offensive Coordinator. Wisenhunt has not had success in the past with grooming young quarterbacks such as Nick Foles. Matt Leinart, Derek Anderson, Max Hall and John Skelton are just a handful of rookie quarterbacks Wisenhunt used in Arizona but never had the success he had with Kurt Warner. Obviously the talent difference between them is high but a good NFL Offensive Coordinator should be able to groom a young quarterback into a NFL starter.
Personally I think it’s time for Jeffrey Lurie & Howie Roseman to offer the job to Bradley and get him to opportunity to start putting together a staff. Everything I’ve heard from people in the NFL is that Bradley is a very smart man and someone who if he isn’t a Head Coach this season will be next year. The longer they wait and drag their feet through this process Bradley may have a hard time putting together a coaching staff and that’s not something that will be good for the type of rebuilding the team needs to do.Tags: Gus Bradley, Head coach, Howie Roseman, Jeffrey Lurie, Ken Wisenhunt, NFL, Nick Foles, Philadelphia Eagles
