Eagles’ interview two more defensive coordinator candidates
Add two more defensive coordinator candidates to the Philadelphia Eagles list to replace Jonathan Gannon, who left to take the head coaching position in Arizona.
The team has interviews set up with Arizona's Vance Joseph, Seattle's Sean Desai and Wisconsin's Jim Leonard. Now you can add Rams pass game coordinator and defensive backs coach, Chris Shula and Michigan defensive coordinator Jesse Minter.
The team will reportedly meet with Joseph on a virtual interview on Thursday and already met with former Wisconsin defensive, Leonhard.
Shula has a connection with Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni with the Chargers and has a back ground of working with linebackers in 2021 and with the outside linebackers from 2019-20.
Minter has come NFL experience, having coached the Baltimore Ravens, first as a defensive assistant and then defensive backs coach from 2017-2020. He was also the defensive coordinator at Vanderbilt and is currently holding that title at Michigan.
That makes five different candidates so far for the Eagles to replace Gannon, with more likely coming, including Dennard Wilson as a possibility, if the team stays in-house.
