If this happens it may be a move, that will suit the Eagles, well. Just the idea of Duce Staley returning to an Eagles stadium will boost fan morale. Whether or not it will happen or even work, is still debatable. But in all likelihood, this could be something that pans out for the Philadelphia Eagles.
“The Philadelphia Eagles’ search for Chip Kelly’s replacement began in earnest. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday that the Eagles interviewed running backs coach Duce Staley on Friday for their head coaching vacancy. ESPN’s Ed Werder first reported the news. The Eagles later confirmed the interview. Staley played 10 NFL seasons as a running back, from 1997-2006, spending seven seasons with the Eagles. Staley spent the past five seasons on Philadelphia’s coaching staff, the past three as running backs coach. After firing Kelly this week, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said he was looking for a coach who connects well with players in the locker room and noted he might interview coaches currently on the staff” -Reported by Kevin Patra
