With Doug Pederon officially hired by the Philadelphia Eagles, he’s expected to announce in the coming days that Frank Reich will be his offensive coordinator.
Reich will come across the country after being the San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator the past two seasons. He was fired by the team after the season when head coach Mike McCoy was granted a reprieve for one more season.
He was urged to make coaching changed to keep his job. Reich was one of the changes that McCoy made.
This past season, the Chargers had a lot of offensive weapons in Philip Rivers, Danny Woodhead, Keenan Allen and Antonio Gates, among others. Yet, with Rivers and Gates aging, the Chargers could only must a 4-12 record.
Reich’s considered a bright offensive mind. However, he was criticized for his play calling this past season due to the team’s bad record.
In his first season as the Chargers offensive coordinator in 2014, the team went 9-7. They were also 9-7 in 2013 when Ken Whisenhunt was the Chargers offensive coordinator.
Whisenhunt was recently hired by the Chargers to be their offensive coordinator once again.
Prior to getting promoted to the Chargers offensive coordinator, he was the teams quarterback coach in 2013 under Whisenhunt.
He was the Arizona Cardinals wide receiver coach in 2012.
He also served as the Indianapolis Colts wide receiver and quarterbacks coach. He was their quarterbacks coach in 2009-2010. He then was promoted to wide receivers coach in 2011.
Reich began his coaching career with the Colts as an offensive assistant coach in 2008.
He also spent 14-years as a player in the NFL. He played for the Buffalo Bills (1985-1994), Carolina Panthers (1995), New York Jets (1996) and Detroit Lions (1997-1998).
