The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to seek permission from the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday to interview offensive coordinator Jay Gruden for their head coaching vacancy, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
The Eagles are expected to seek permission from the Bengals on Monday to talk to their offensive coordinator, Jay Gruden, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.
The Bengals lost to the Houston Texans yesterday in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, so an interview could come sooner than later if Cincinnati gives the green light.
Eagles’ fans had been hoping the team would land a Gruden this offseason, but they were aiming for Jay’s older brother Jon. Jay has been the Bengals’ offensive coordinator over the past two seasons, pairing with quarterback Andy Dalton to lead a successful unit. The 45-year-old has 10 seasons of coaching experience, both in the NFL and the AFL.
