Eagles to interview Coughlin on Monday
PHILADELPHIA (AP) Two people familiar with the team’s plans say the Philadelphia Eagles will interview Tom Coughlin for their coaching vacancy on Monday.
Both people spoke to The Associated Press on Sunday on condition of anonymity because the team isn’t confirming interviews until they’re completed.
Coughlin is a two-time Super Bowl champion who stepped down last week after 12 seasons with the New York Giants. He previously coached Jacksonville from 1995-2002.
The 69-year-old Coughlin is 170-150 in a 20-year career. He had 10 winning seasons, including seven years with double-digit wins, and led his teams to the playoffs nine times, going 12-7.
Coughlin’s Giants missed the playoffs the past four seasons after beating New England in the Super Bowl after the 2011 season.
The Eagles interviewed Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson on Sunday morning. Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo also interviewed along with former Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase, who took the job in Miami.
