Eagles en route to Atlanta to interview Nolan, Armstrong
January 2, 2013, 3:53 pm
Eagles team brass headed to Atlanta today to start the first round of interviews for the team’s head coaching vacancy.
Team chairman Jeffrey Lurie, president Don Smolenski and general manager Howie Roseman boarded a flight around 2:45 p.m. and will interview Falcons special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong and defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, according to team spokesperson Derek Boyko.
The trio also plans to meet this weekend with Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, although Boyko said an interview time and date has yet to be scheduled despite a Daily News report that McCoy will meet with the Eagles on Sunday.
The Eagles had also planned to interview Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter during their trip to Atlanta but Koetter signed an extension today and agreed to remain with Atlanta.
Nolan, a former head coach of the 49ers, and McCoy are both represented by agent Bob Lamonte, who also represents Roseman and former Eagles coach Andy Reid.
The Eagles signed defensive end Everette Brown and cornerback Trevard Lindley on Wednesday. Brown, a former second-round pick of the Panthers, last played with the Chargers in 2011. Lindley, the Eagles' fourth-round pick in 2010, played in 11 games during the 2010 season. The Eagles cut him just before the 2012 season opener.
