Eagles Interview Former Running Back

As we all now know that the Philadelphia Eagles fired head coach Chip Kelly four days ago after his third season. Brining in the new year by looking for a new head coach the Eagles interviewed former running back Duce Staley. He currently serves as the Eagles’ running back coach interviewed for the position Friday. 

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said he fired Kelly before the season was over to get a head start on the process of finding a new coach. Lurie also said he has not ruled out offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, who will serve as the interim coach for Week 17 against the Giants.

Staley played seven season with the Eagles looks to be the favorite of Lurie. Te interview that took place helps the Eagles meet the requirements of the NFL’s Rooney Rule, which mandates the inclusion of minority candidates being interviewed before franchises can complete the hiring process.

While with the Eagles Staley had three 1,000-yard seasons and ran for a total of 4,807 yards. He was with the Eagles from 1997 to 2003. Staley also played three seasons with the Pittsburg Steelers from 2004 to 2006.
