Eagles Doug Pederson is Out As Head Coach After 5 Years


Sometimes people don't care that you got the football team a ring. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson has been fired. He'd been with the team for 5 years, even delivering the team's first and only Super Bowl title in the city's history. Although this season wasn't the best, he was expected to remain as coach, according to ESPN. But multiple meetings with team owner Jeffrey Lurie over the past week left his boss unconvinced that Pederson had a sound vision for how to address the a lot of issues with the team, from the Carson Wentz situation, to fixing an offense that finished 26th in scoring in 2020. Lurie explained the decisionduring a video news conference on Monday saying, "My first allegiance is, what will be best for the Philadelphia Eagles and our fans for the next three, four, five years. It's not based on does someone deserve to hold their job or deserve to get fired; that's a different bar." The Eagles owner even posted a message on Twitter. Now the search is on for a new head coach.
