Eagles To Interview Lovie Smith Thursday
Former Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith was the most shocking firing during that black Monday spree that saw seven head coaches get pink slips.
Smith is still a hot name and has garnered several interviews since last week. ESPN is reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles will interview Smith on Thursday.
The 4-12 Eagles fired former coach Andy Reid on that memorable Monday. The 54-year-old Smith was fired even though the Bears were 10-6 this season because he could never produce a consistent offense, and he missed the playoffs 5 out of the last 6 seasons.
The Eagles will also interview Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden.
