PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Eagles will interview Lovie Smith for their coaching vacancy on Thursday.
Smith was fired after nine seasons with the Bears. He led Chicago to three division titles and one NFC championship. He lost his job after the team went 3-5 following a 7-1 start and missed the playoffs.
The Eagles, who fired Andy Reid after 14 seasons, also plan to interview Indianapolis offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Seattle defensive coordinator Gus Bradley this week. They’ve already interviewed five other candidates.
Philadelphia went 4-12 this season and finished in last place in the NFC East. Reid, dismissed last Monday, was hired as coach in Kansas City.
