The Philadelphia Eagles have officially fired head coach Andy Reid this morning.
Reid was informed of owner Jeffrey Lurie’s decision on a Friday meeting with the owner. But it wasn’t until the Eagles 42-7 loss to the New York Giants that the word first started to come out about Reid’s imminent firing.
Reid is expected to be one of six head coaches, possibly more, that will be fired today. It is being regarded as Black Monday around the league.
The Eagles finished with a 4-12 record, and haven’t finished with last had a record worse was in 1998. In that season, the Eagles were 3-13, which just happens to be the season before Reid’s arrival from the Green Bay Packers.
Reid has already put a possible coaching staff together for his next destination. He is not expected to become the next San Diego Chargers head coach, but will be the top choice with the Arizona Cardinals and the Jacksonville Jaguars should he want to coach next season.
