It’s been an interesting week in the NFL as numerous teams parted ways with their head coaches and have already started interviewing for the 2013 season. One of the most popular head coaches on the market at the moment that will most likely end up with a starting job in the next week or so–former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid.
The Eagles parted ways with their former head coach this week after 14 seasons following another disappointing season in which the team finished with a 4-12 record. Despite Philadelphia’s disappointing records over the last two seasons, Reid helped the Eagles appear in five NFC Championship games in eight seasons to go along with six division titles.
Then again, Reid failed to bring one Lombardi Trophy to Philadelphia despite having plenty of talented teams over the years–so why would anyone want to bring him on board for 2013?
Reid is gaining plenty of attention from teams like the Kansas City Chiefs and Arizona Cardinals (he thinks he can fix Kevin Kolb–which is hilarious) as he’s been lining up a coaching staff over the last week in case he does end up with a job quickly, but it’s difficult to imagine him having success anywhere else when he couldn’t even get the job done in Philadelphia.
Some of the other head coaches that have been fired this week include Lovie Smith, Pat Shurmur, Ken Whisenhunt, Norv Turner, and Romeo Crennel. The argument can be made that none of these coaches deserved to have a job in the first place and it should be interesting to see where the next couple of months take them as they look to find work before the 2013 season.
