Report: Eagles coach Andy Reid interested in Chargers job
This time of the year, NFL executives around the league prepare for “Black Monday”, the annual day after the NFL regular season ends when dozens of coaches will receive their walking papers.
Although he has not been fired yet, Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid is reportedly interested in the San Diego Chargers job, according to CBSSports.com. There is only one problem with that: San Diego hasn’t fired their coach Norv Turner yet either.
Reid made it clear yesterday that if he is fired, he doesn’t want to take time off and wants to coach immediately.
Last month, CBSSports.com’s Jason La Canfora reported on Reid’s interest in the Chargers job.
“The Chargers have been near the top of their division for years and have a former Pro Bowl quarterback in his prime in Philip Rivers,” La Canfora wrote. “Reid is a native of Southern California, has a gorgeous home on the beach in the San Diego area and is known to love the area. Plus, as some close to him note, the media and fan climate in San Diego is vastly different from the cauldron that he has worked in.”
Reid has complied 130-92 in 14 seasons as the Eagles head coach, taking the team to five NFC championship games and one Super Bowl appearance.
