For an NFL franchise that searches for a new head coach, there are some obvious negatives associated with the process, the largest being that your team does not happen to have a head coach in place. Talent is talent, and money is money, but nothing shapes a team's direction and prospects for success like a good head coach. He institutes the system, directs the training and coaching programs, and imparts the confidence (or lack thereof) throughout the organization that things are on the right path.

The Eagles will hire Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson as their next head coach, league sources confirmed Thursday. Because the Chiefs are still in the playoffs, the Eagles must wait for their season to conclude before the move will be official. The Chiefs will play the New England Patriots on Saturday. "We have concluded our search for a new head coach," an Eagles spokesman said. "No further interviews are scheduled. " The selection of Pederson is a nod by owner Jeffrey Lurie to the success and environment that the team had under Andy Reid.

IF THE Eagles truly are trying to recapture the tenure of former head coach Andy Reid with the reported imminent hiring of Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson, why would that be a bad thing? Count me among those who felt that Reid had run his course with the Eagles when he was fired after the 2012 season, but that doesn't negate the success he had with the Birds. In 14 seasons in Philadelphia, Reid, who is now the coach in Kansas City, went 130-93-1 in the regular season, reached five NFC Championship Games and the February 2005 Super Bowl.

THE EAGLES aren't saying anything, but time and candidate attrition are giving shape to their coaching search. The Giants were widely reported to be about to hire Ben McAdoo Wednesday night, abruptly ending speculation that McAdoo was about to be tapped by the Eagles - speculation that might have been designed to put a little pressure on the Giants to close the deal with McAdoo, their offensive coordinator under Tom Coughlin. Hue Jackson was introduced Wednesday as the new Browns coach; unlike McAdoo or new Miami coach Adam Gase, Jackson didn't interview with the Eagles, but he was considered one of the top prizes on the market, and he no longer is on the market.

The Eagles have confirmed interviews with the following coaches: Doug Pederson, Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Age: 47 Info: Pederson is a former Eagles quarterback and assistant coach who comes with Andy Reid's endorsement. He cannot be hired until the Chiefs complete their playoff run, but Pederson's connection to the organization makes him a strong candidate. He spent 12 years as an NFL quarterback. He has not been a full-time play caller in his career, and he has worked only under Reid as an NFL coach.

IF YOUR frame of reference is 2015, then hiring Tom Coughlin to coach the Eagles must seem like a crazy idea. Coughlin, 69, gently led toward the New York Giants' door after a 6-10 season, presided over several late-game collapses. The Giants media and fan base spent much of the year talking about how their team was better than its record, which is pretty much always an indictment of coaching. But as the outpouring of affection for Coughlin when he stepped down showed, there was a lot more to the crusty coach than 2015.

Not that it is likely to help his case, but Doug Pederson, the former Eagles quarterback and assistant who interviewed Sunday for the vacant head coaching job, already has his jersey in the Hall of Fame for a Philadelphia accomplishment. As with most things regarding Pederson, however, there are a few asterisks that go along with that story, most of which make you say, "oh," instead of, "OH!" The same applies to his current candidacy for the job that came open when owner Jeffrey Lurie had his fill of Chip Kelly.

Les Bowen Welllll . . . NO. Not so much. Jeffrey Lurie has provided the best, most stable ownership the Eagles have ever had, which is sort of like winning the tallest jockey contest. This is a franchise that has been around since 1933, yet never had a real practice facility, or a stadium to call its own, until Lurie took over from the beloved Norman Braman and made those items a priority. Ownership is the main reason the Eagles only have three championships to show for their long NFL tenure, the most recent having occurred in 1960.

The Eagles interviewed Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson for the team's head coaching vacancy on Sunday. Pederson met with the Eagles' three-man search party - owner Jeffrey Lurie, vice president of football operations Howie Roseman, and team president Don Smolenski - in Kansas City. The Chiefs beat the Texans, 30-0, in the first round of the playoffs on Saturday. They will meet the Patriots in the divisional round on Saturday afternoon. If the Eagles have tagged Pederson as their next coach, they will have to wait until the Chiefs are eliminated from the postseason to hire him. The team has confirmed five interviews - former Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase, who was hired by the Dolphins on Saturday; New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo; Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur; Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley; and Pederson.
