Three years after the Eagles won a Super Bowl title, the coach who brought the Lombardi Trophy to Philadelphia is out.
The Eagles fired head coach Doug Pederson, the team confirmed Monday.
“Coach Pederson and I had the opportunity to sit down and discuss what [our] collective vision would look like moving forward,” Eagles chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie said in a statement. “After taking some time to reflect on these conversations, I believe it is in both of our best interests to part ways.
“We all look forward to the day he will be inducted into the Eagles Hall of Fame as a Super Bowl-winning head coach and we are confident he will have success with his next team.”
NFL Network was the first to report the firing. KEEP READING
