Philadelphia Eagles Hire Nick Sirianni As New Head Coach, Reports Say
The Philadelphia Eagles will hire Nick Sirianni as the team's new head coach, according to multiple reports from ESPN and other sources.
Sirianni, who is 39 years old, currently works as the offensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts. He previously worked for the Kansas City Chiefs and Chargers.
Despite struggling to find a single starting quarterback, the Colts fielded a top-10 offense two of the past three seasons, 6ABC is reporting.
Sirianni began coaching in Kansas City in 2009 (as the team's offensive quality control coach). He then served the team as an assistant quarterbacks coach and wide receivers coach during his time with the Chiefs. He worked with the Chargers from 2013-2017.
Jonathan Gannon is expected to join the Eagles as the team's new defensive coordinator this season too. The schedule for the 2021 season has not been announced.
Hopefully, he'll be able to spark more offensive from the Birds after their disappointing 4-11-1 record this past season -- which lead to the demise of the team's head coach Doug Pederson. The Eagles had interviewed several candidates following Pederson's release -- including their own Duce Staley. Leaving Saley's role with the team in question moving forward.
Meanwhile, the Eagles are expected to make the news of Sirianni's hiring official later this weekend. Sirianni will be the team's 21st full-time head coach in the history of the Philadelphia Eagles.
