XLV: Eagles targeting a Packers assistant?
By Kevin Seifert
Are the Philadelphia Eagles eyeing a member of the Green Bay Packers' coaching staff for their open defensive coordinator job? Yes indeed, according to longtime NFL writer Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com.
Frank suggests safeties coach Darren Perry is the Eagles' target. Another possibility is defensive line coach Mike Trgovac, who spent six seasons as the Carolina Panthers' defensive coordinator before joining the Packers last season.
Both Perry and Trgovac have been lauded in NFL circles for the job they've done this season, and it's no surprise that an assistant from the league's fifth-ranked defense would be in line for a promotion. Technically, nothing can happen on this front until after Super Bowl XLV. So stay tuned.
