PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — While most of Philadelphia was hoping that Steve Spagnuolo would be the new Eagles Defensive Coordinator, Andy Reid wasn’t really considering it, Garry Cobb says.
Cobb, former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker and current 94 WIP host, told Angelo Cataldi and The Morning Team that Andy Reid definitely could have tried harder to hire Spagnuolo. “It doesn’t look like there was a lot of effort in bringing him in,” Cobb said. “With the relationship Andy Reid has with him, he could have at least come into town to interview him.” Spagnuolo was hired by the Saints last week as the New Orleans Defensive Coodinator.
Cobb doesn’t think Reid would bring in Spagnuolo just to appease fans, and isn’t concerned with the fact that he hasn’t spoken publicly in almost a month. “That’s something that Andy does give as much wake to as he should,” Cobb said about Reid’s concern with public relations.
So who will be the man controlling the Eagles defense next year? Well, that’s easy Cobb said, “We already know who the Defensive Coordinator is going to be, Juan Castillo.”
