Dave any chance he's retained after the season, or is he just here till the end of the season?

Personally I want him to stay. The d line has had great success ever since Washburn left. Keep him here with Graham who's set to start next year.

The guy is 75 yrs old I believe...how long would you expect him to stay on?

They also have to make a determination on Bowles' future as well....hopefully before they figure out the dline coaching situation

Tommy Brasher is a good d-Line coach....always was......contributed to the development of the Eagles d-line way back when Reggie White was young. That said, he's about 147 years old (lol..J.K.) and was retired...he came out of mothballs as a favor to Reid and will return there after the season.

I expect a new HC will bring in a new D-line coach, and I'm not worried about it....there are plenty of assistant coaches to choose from....they'll find another guy.

I think Dave said that Basher was here as a favor to Reid.

I don't know why this is so hard to figure out. All of the assistant coaches have seperate contracts. Laurie will hire a new HC and the new HC will likely clean house. However just like Andy Reid kept John Harbaugh and Juan Castillo from Ray Rhodes staff, the new HC will have the option of keeping anyone from Reids staff that appeals to him. Brasher was 71 as of 12/8/12 according to this article http://articles.philly.com/2012-12-08/sports/35672805_1_new-defensive-line-coach-fletcher-cox-football-coach

I don't know why everyone is so sure Reid is gone. Lurie just said he would not give him an extension if they had a poor 2012 season. Lurie does not like to pay people for doing nothing. I believe either Reid will be back for his final year or he will move him to a management position for a year or Reid will resign if he wants to coach in 2013 somewhere else.

Well, I won't really believe it until I see it. Heck knows I certainly wouldn't put it past him.

Really?, "if" Brasher wanted to still coach, and we stayed 4-3 (which we should), why not have a great DL coach?, he has a proven track record, our best defenses under JJ where with him, players respect him. I don't want Jenkins/Segrest type of DL coaches

No worries there as long as Reid isn't doing the hiring, Rodney.
