Jeffrey Lurie started with 25 coaching candidates, pared the group to 10, interviewed six coaches, and finally introduced Doug Pederson on Tuesday as the Eagles' next head coach. The process to find Chip Kelly's replacement came under scrutiny, but Lurie insisted it was thorough - and that Pederson, however familiar, "checked the box on everything. " Lurie witnessed Pederson's leadership blossom from player to assistant coach to head coaching candidate. He saw a 47-year-old who came across as a "smart, strategic thinker" with "unparalleled" communication skills and was "comfortable in [his]

NOT EVEN an hour after his Chiefs fell in New England, incumbent Eagles head coach Doug Pederson moved to flesh out his staff. The obvious goal: Familiarity and experience. With only seven seasons as an NFL assistant, the first two spent as a 41-year-old intern, it is fair to question Pederson's bona fides as a coach. Considering his wish list, it is hard to question Pederson's strategy as a hirer. He clearly wants to insulate himself with loyal, accomplished men. A league source said Sunday that, if he has his way, Pederson's chief lieutenants will include a former teammate and two former NFL head coaches who, like Pederson, owe their NFL careers to Andy Reid.

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)

If Doug Pederson learned anything from Andy Reid - and the Eagles had better hope it wasn't only time management - it should be how to select a defensive coordinator as a new head coach. Reid got it right with the Eagles and the Chiefs when he tabbed Jim Johnson and Bob Sutton, respectively, to run his defense. In both cases, he went with veteran coaches who had mild success as NFL coordinators but impressed Reid when his teams faced their defenses. Johnson and Sutton were also beyond the point of being considered future head coaches.

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)

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.
