Nick Sirianni Hints At Internal Solutions To Coaching Vacancies

That it’s a sign of success may not be a comfort to Eagles coach Nick Sirianni, who needs new staff.

The team that got Philadelphia to Super Bowl 57 has been picked off. Defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon has been made head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. As well as that, offensive coordinator Shane Steichen is now head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.

“From our position coaches to our coordinators all the way to our quality control coaches and assistant position coaches, I want them involved in everything and I try to give them things that helped me throughout my career and that’s my job as head coach,” Nick Sirianni said. 

“With that, Shane and Jonathan were successful not only because Shane and Jonathan are good football coaches but also because they have good assistants, and they have good people working with them. So I feel like we have a lot of good in-house options, which is always going to be where start because that’s just always been how I’ve learned of grooming the people that you have and when this day happens you’re ready to go.

“I really believe in the turnover differential, I really believe in that explosive-play differential, and so there’s things of that nature of that defense that I like, and then there’s going to be things situationally that are non-negotiables, I guess to say, with me whether it’s third-and-long, tight red zone, two-minute, four-minute defense backed up, I’m going to naturally have things that I’m going to require the next defensive coordinator do, but I also know that I’m hiring somebody to do their job to the best of their abilities — that’s why I’m hiring them.
