First McDermott, Now Segrest: Philadelphia Eagles Fire Another Defensive Coach
Just one day after the Philadelphia Eagles announced that they have fired defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, the team announced that it has fired another coach on the defense.
Defensive line coach Rory Segrest has been fired by the team.
Andy Reid stated that he believes the Eagles have talent on the defensive line but they are underachieving.
This season, Mike Patterson and Brodrick Bunkley had relatively quite seasons. Antonio Dixon emerged as a playmaker and is probably the best defensive tackle on the team. And Trevor Laws is finally emerging as a playmaker.
Trent Cole earned his third Pro Bowl selection. Juqua Parker had a mediocre season. Darryl Tapp was productive. Brandon Graham was disappointing before suffering a season ending ACL injury. And Daniel Teo’Nesheim was a nobody at defensive end.
Segrest used to be the Eagles’ special teams coordinator but was demoted after some subpar seasons.
Now he’s proven to be a failure at defensive line coach as well.
