According to Jaws the Eagles reached out to him the day Chip Kelly was let go, via 97.5 The Fanatic:
“I was a part of it since the day Chip Kelly was released. Howie Roseman reached out to me and asked if I would assist the Eagles in their coaching search. I said yes but I needed to speak to my folks up at ESPN to see if there would be any conflict in helping the Eagles find a head coach and they said 'Nope, go ahead'”Now this actual exchange could be completely made up. Jaws does work at ESPN and they love to make shit up.
Assuming he didn't make it, this just speaks volumes about the levels of madness in Philly and it fully explains the Doug Pederson hire.
