The Eagles appeared to value Doug Pederson's connection to Andy Reid when they picked him to be the next head coach, but it does not sound as if Pederson will bring any of Reid's assistants from Kansas City to Philadelphia. That could be a factor at offensive coordinator, where Pederson's background with Brad Childress, the Chiefs' spread game analyst/special projects coach, led to speculation that he could be a possibility. Childress was Pederson's quarterbacks coach in 1999 and is a former Eagles offensive coordinator and Minnesota Vikings head coach.

WE'RE HEARING lots of names mentioned now as part of Doug Pederson's potential Eagles staff - the Daily News' Marcus Hayes is reporting that former Chargers offensive coordinator Frank Reich and current Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo could assume those roles here, and Fox Sports' Alex Marvez said former Eagles safety Tim Hauck will assist Cory Undlin with the defensive backs. Apparently, Pederson would like to pry former Eagles offensive coordinator (and ex-Vikings head coach)

GIVEN THE CLOSE connection that Doug Pederson has to Andy Reid, it is human nature to think the Eagles' imminent hiring of the Kansas City Chiefs' offensive coordinator as head coach represents a return to the era Reid established in South Philadelphia for 14 seasons. After all, Reid, who was the quarterbacks coach in Green Bay when he was named Eagles coach in 1999, handpicked Pederson, the backup quarterback for the Packers, to be his first starter and help teach his system of offense to the Birds.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Doug Pederson walked into the locker room as an assistant coach one last time on Saturday. He held a play sheet in his left hand while walking among players just seconds after the Kansas City Chiefs' 27-20 loss to the New England Patriots. Pederson exited 30 minutes later, wheeling a suitcase to the team bus after a bad night but heading toward a bright future. The next time he leaves a football field, it will be as the head coach of the Eagles. Pederson declined comment to reporters from the Philadelphia area in the Gillette Stadium hallway after the loss, which eliminated the Chiefs from the playoffs and will allow the Eagles to hire Pederson as Chip Kelly's replacement this week.

AS WE WAIT to see how new Eagles coach Doug Pederson's Chiefs fare in Saturday's AFC divisional matchup against the Patriots, we can kill some of the time by pointing out that Andy Reid's assistants have outperformed Bill Belichick's assistants when they've moved on to head-coaching gigs. And, really, by pointing this out, all we are doing is killing time. In general, the branches off a coaching tree struggle to blossom. That because coaches in general tend to fail, which is why NFL owners hire new ones every year.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Andy Reid still doesn't allow out-of-town media to watch any of his practices. So it's unusual to be on the outside looking in for the first time. But there is one notable difference between Reid's practices with the Chiefs compared with his days with the Eagles, and it can be heard by anyone within earshot of Kansas City's training fields. If you close your eyes, it sounds almost like the practices Chip Kelly ran in Philadelphia for three years after Reid left. I said you wanna be startin' somethin' You got to be startin' somethin' It's too high to get over (yeah, yeah)

You know it's coming. Jeffrey Lurie will take the podium at the NovaCare Complex in the coming days or weeks and say some form of the following: Doug Pederson was our first and only choice to be the next Eagles head coach. And that may be true. There were early indications that the Chiefs offensive coordinator was among the Eagles' list of candidates. Lurie had known Pederson well during his days as an Eagles player and coach, and looking to catch up on his last three seasons in Kansas City, he contacted Andy Reid very early in the process.

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.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Doug Pederson had never called a play as an NFL offensive coordinator until this season. His boss, Andy Reid, handled those chores. The Chiefs coach added more to Pederson's plate in 2015, giving him situational play-calling responsibilities such as the two-minute drill. When Pederson's quarterbacks were asked about his readiness to become a full-time play-caller - or even a head coach, as he will be with the Eagles - they didn't focus as much on the job he has done in that role as they did on his actual experience as a quarterback.
