Eagles Fire D-Line Coach Rory Segrest
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The shakeup on defense continued for the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. One day after relieving defensive coordinator Sean McDermott of his duties, the Eagles did the same with defensive line coach Rory Segrest.
The move was confirmed on the team’s website.
Segrest, who joined Andy Reid’s staff in 2005, had coached the defensive line for the last two seasons.
The defensive line struggled with its pass rush much of the season, recording just seven sacks in the Eagles’ last six games.
In two playoff games under the direction of Segrest, the Eagles defensive lineman failed to record a single sack, while the defense as a whole allowed the opposing running back to rush for well over a hundred yards in each contest.
No replacement for either Segrest or McDermott has yet been named.
