According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, “esteemed (coaches)” around the league are reportedly advising potential candidates to not take the Eagles head coaching job due to the presence of GM Howie Roseman.
La Canfora adds that Roseman is “trying to fight a growing perception around the league that he is woefully out of his depth.”
This could be one of the main reasons why they have been turned down by a number of their top coaching candidates to this point.
“The rumblings about Roseman lacking nuance and foresight, about him turning people off with how drunk with power he’s become, only grow louder as his coaching search grows stranger,” La Canfora writes.
Other candidates for the job include: Falcons DC Mike Nolan, Broncos OC Mike McCoy, Colts OC Bruce Arians, Lovie Smith, Bengals OC Jay Gruden, Falcons ST coordinator Keith Armstrong and Seahawks DC Gus Bradley.
