Steve Spagnuolo had long been rumored to be the Eagles' next defensive coordinator.
That's no longer an option.
Spagnuolo, who was mentored by former Eagles DC Jim Johnson, has accepted the Saints' defensive coordinator position, according to Jay Glazer. He replaces Gregg Williams who bolted for St. Louis.
Andy Reid still hasn't held his official, end-of-season press conference. The holdup was thought to be Reid's decision about what to do about the Eagles' defensive coordinator gig. Would he be able to bring Spagnuolo back into the nest? Or is he keeping Juan Castillo? Or is there a Plan C?
With Spagnuolo out of the picture, guess we'll just have to keep waiting ...
