After not getting an interview in the first few weeks of the offseason, Josh McDaniels was requested by the Eagles over the weekend and quickly gained steam.
According to The Athletic, even before the interview on Sunday, McDaniels had begun recruiting the coaching staff he would like to bring with him if he got the job. It’s unclear who these coaches would be, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if a few have ties to New England.
It’s hard to recall him doing this prior to his other interviews with other teams over the years (besides the Colts), which seems to be an indication he’s very interested in the job.
Also, McDaniels’ interview Sunday lasted quite awhile.
According to John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia, McDaniels met with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and other members of the front office in Florida from mid-morning until past 9 p.m.
That's a long time and is another indication both sides are serious about him potentially taking the job.
Buccaneers defensive coordinator Todd Bowles will interview Monday, which means this full list of interviews (of coaches still available) are McDaniels, Bowles, Joe Brady, Jerod Mayo and Duce Staley.
Philadelphia and Houston are the only two teams left without a head coach.
