The Eagles interviewed Chicago Bears defensive backs coach Jon Hoke for their defensive coordinator opening, the team announced Monday.
Hoke is the second candidate to interview for the job previously held by Sean McDermott, who was fired on Jan. 13. The Eagles met with former New Orleans assistant Dennis Allen last week, but he ended up taking Denver's defensive coordinator position.
Hoke has been in Chicago for the last two seasons. Before that, the 56-year-old was the defensive backs coach for the Houston Texans for seven seasons. Last season, the Bears' pass defense ranked 20th in the league and allowed just 14 passing touchdowns, which was the NFL's second-lowest total.
