GLENDALE, Ariz. -- In wrapping up coverage of Sunday's NFC Championship Game, I wanted to point out that Philadelphia defensive backs coach Sean McDermott is now eligible to interview for defensive coordinator positions around the NFL following the Eagles' 32-25 loss to Arizona.

Several NFL teams are said to be interested in speaking with McDermott, including Green Bay. He would not fit the profile of candidates that Packers coach Mike McCarthy has previously interviewed, but McCarthy might need to lower his standards after losing out on long-time coordinators Mike Nolan and Gregg Williams.

It's not entirely clear whether the Eagles will permit McDermott to interview if teams request him. 

Jim Haslett remains a possibility for the job, as does Dom Capers. But Capers also is receiving interest from the New York Giants. We'll keep you updated.
