Andy Reid to be fired by Eagles Monday, per report

Elsa

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.
