Last week, it was reported by Philadelphia Daily News Eagles beat writer Les Bowen that the Eagles were set to name Kansas City Offensive Coordinator Doug Pederson as the new Eagles Head Coach.

Although the move has been questioned by some Philadelphia fans and media, a report that came out from Sports Illustrated’s Don Banks may ease some of the fears about the staff Pederson will have around him.

Schwartz’s last job was with the Buffalo Bills in 2014.  As the Bills defensive coordinator, he led a unit that finished 4th overall in yards allowed (312 yards a game) and 4th overall in points allowed (18.1 points per game). During his coaching tenure, players such as Ndamukong Suh and Mario Williams had dominating seasons on the defensive line. Why would this be important? The Eagles defense with players such as Fletcher Cox, Bennie Logan and Jordan Hicks could do well in Schwartz’s system. It will be interesting to watch to see if this report comes to fruition and who else could be added to Pederson’s staff.
