The Eagles made it official on Thursday, bringing in Colts OC Nick Sirianni to be the team’s new head coach.
Sirianni met with the Eagles all day on Tuesday, and the meeting went well enough to convince ownership that he was the right man to lead the team for the future to replace Doug Pederson.
The 39-year-old started his NFL coaching career with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009 as an offensive quality control coach.
The OC has worked under former Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich for the past three seasons, and this past season, the Colts’ offense was 10th in the NFL, averaging 378.1 yards per game.
The team parted ways with Pederson after he and the front office couldn’t see eye to eye on the quarterback situation.
Pederson wanted rookie Jalen Hurts, while the front office wanted the team to stay with Carson Wentz.
Now with Sirianni as coach, it will be interesting to see the quarterback direction the team goes in.
