Now that Jim Mora has removed his name from consideration for Eagles defensive coordinator, the club has turned its attention to New Orleans Saints secondary coach Dennis Allen. In firing 36-year-old Sean McDermott, the Eagles indicated a desire to bring in a more experienced coordinator.
So they've turned to Allen, age 38. Perhaps they're looking at Allen to take over the secondary if Dick Jauron is promoted to defensive coordinator, but that would be a lateral move for Allen. And I'm not sure Sean Payton would even allow that to happen.
The Eagles could be waiting to interview assistants who are still in the playoffs. Maybe we'll find out more once Andy Reid returns from Antigua. It's an interesting location to run a coaching search from, but he was able to connect on defensive line coach Jim Washburn.
