The Eagles are talking to longtime Tennessee Titans assistant Jim Washburn about their defensive-line coaching vacancy, league sources confirmed.
The story was first reported by the Tennessean after an interview with Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher.
A deal appears imminent, one source told The Inquirer. Titans coaches work under one-year contracts, and with Fisher on shaky ground after another losing season, Washburn may be looking for more stability - and perhaps a bigger paycheck.
The 61-year-old Washburn has been with the Titans for the last 12 seasons. During his tenure, he helped mold a number of linemen into Pro Bowlers, including defensive ends Kyle Vanden Bosch and Jevon Kearse, and defensive tackles Kevin Carter and Albert Haynesworth.
