Eagles interview Duce Staley for head coaching position
The Philadelphia Eagles interviewed running backs coach Duce Staley for their vacant head coaching position on Friday.
Staley was a running back for the Eagles from 1997 to 2003, and is regarded as a fan favorite in Philadelphia. He has been on the Eagles staff since 2011.
It’s unclear how serious of a candidate Staley is. A cynic might note that he fulfills the requirements of the Rooney Rule, and he’s only been a coach for just under five years and has never been above running backs coach. Perhaps the Eagles really do want a fresh voice, however.
