Andy Reid will be fired as the Philadelphia Eagles' head coach on Monday, sources told Eagles beat writer Bob Grotz. If he is fired, it would end his 14-year run as head coach of the organization.
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid will be relieved of his duties after 14 years with the organization on Monday, a source told Eagles beat writer Bob Grotz. According to Grotz, with one year left on Reid's contract, it’s unclear if the two sides have reached a financial settlement yet.
If Grotz's report is correct, it would end a tumultuous tenure for Reid in Philadelphia.
During his 14 seasons with the Eagles, Reid became both the winningest and losingest coach in franchise history, with an overall record of 140-101-1 entering Sunday's finale against the Giants. He also made the playoffs nine times with the organization, with five trips to the NFC Championship and a Super Bowl run during the 2004 season. Philadelphia lost to the Patriots, 24-21, in the big game that season.
However, for all Reid's success early, his last couple seasons with the club have been disappointments. Philadelphia finished just 8-8 during the 2011 campaign, and prior to the start of the 2012 season, owner Jeff Lurie hinted that a similar record could cost Reid his job.
Philadelphia was 4-11 entering Sunday's game against the Giants, leading to massive speculation that it would be Reid's final game as the Eagles head coach.
