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.

    If we had a Defense we would have been playing for a super bowl. Good Move by the birds. From what I hear our new D line coach will take no BS and keep these guys in line. Next year (if) and that is a big if we have a pass rush plus one new corner we could be in the top 5 in turnovers in the league.

    I like what I see right now. I hope Big Red Keeps on this path. We have a young team. The future looks very good for this team. Lets go EAGLES!

    Unfortunately as good as things look I always feel that they could blow things up at any moment. Here to a NEW bread of eagles football next year!!!
