    At a time when it appears that the next defensive coordinator in Green Bay will be former 49ers head coach Mike Nolan or former Jaguars defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that there’s another candidate for the job.

    Eagles secondary coach Sean McDermott, per Schefter, is also a leading candidate for the position.

    McDermott replaced John Harbaugh who parlayed one year in that position (and several more as special teams coach) into the Ravens head-coaching job. The prior year, McDermott worked for a season as the replacement at linebackers coach to current Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.

    In all, McDermott has been with the Eagles since 1998.

    If McDermott is still under contract with Philly, the Eagles could block the move. If his contract is expiring after the current season ends, he’s free to go.

    But would Philly block a move for a guy if the position on another team was an upgrade/promotion? :thinking:

    I doubt if they would stand in his way if he had the opportunity to better himself via a promotion.

    Yeah, Philly would let him go as Jim Johnson could just train another guy as he's done in the past. McDermott would be an interesting choice. and it would play toward what our secondary is accustomed to.
