Doug Pederson Out as Eagles Head Coach
The Philadelphia Eagles have parted ways with their head coach, Doug Pederson, according to multiple reports from the NFL Network and ESPN.
Pederson was released by the team in a meeting held in Florida on Monday. The meeting was believed to be an opportunity for Pederson to present his plans to fix the Eagles, according to multiple reports from CBS Sports.
Pederson led the team to three straight playoff appearances, having a total record of 46-39-1 over his five-season tenure with the team. However, the Eagles finished this season 4-11-1, which marked the team’s worst performance since 2012. In fact, only three teams in the team's 88-year history have lost more games, according to an analysis from NBC 10.
Neither the Eagles nor Doug Pederson has commented on the news so far, which was first reported by ESPN’s Dan Graziano just after 2 pm ET on Monday.
