David F. Simon, longtime chief legal officer at the former Jefferson Health System, has been named to the same job at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, the medical school on City Avenue said Thursday. Less than a year ago, Simon joined Elliott Greenleaf, a Blue Bell law firm, as senior shareholder and co-chairman of the firm's executive committee. His last day at the firm is Jan. 29, PCOM said. Jay Feldstein, PCOM's president, and Simon know each other from working together at the former US Health Care.

Doug Pederson said he would call plays on offense as the Eagles' new head coach. That might not necessarily be good news considering that he confirmed that he directed the Chiefs' sluggish final drive in the divisional playoff loss to the Patriots on Saturday. Many assumed that it was Andy Reid (who has had game management woes over his entire coaching career) calling the plays. But Pederson, the former Chiefs offensive coordinator, said that he started calling plays in the second half of games dating back to Week 7. "Coach Reid and I had a great understanding and a great feel for the game," Pederson said Tuesday.

THEY SAID everything you should have wanted to hear. For all of the talk about Chip Kelly's personality and sports science idiosyncrasies, it was his inability to adapt his coaching to the strengths and weaknesses of his players that led to his running out the leash that Jeffrey Lurie afforded him. This was particularly true on the defensive side of the ball, where he employed a defensive coordinator who insisted on running a two-gap, 3-4 base...

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.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Saturday offered a reminder of what Philadelphia once had with Andy Reid. He coached deep into the playoffs, as he often did with the Eagles. And he answered questions about his time management, which he also did often with the Eagles. The New England Patriots stopped the Kansas City Chiefs' 11-game winning streak with a 27-20 win at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots advanced to their fifth consecutive AFC championship game. The Chiefs were eliminated, and the loss allows the Eagles to hire offensive coordinator Doug Pederson as their head coach.

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.

The attention of the Eagles' front office will turn to the AFC divisional playoffs on Saturday afternoon. The Kansas City Chiefs visit the New England Patriots, and if the Chiefs lose, the Eagles can move forward in hiring Doug Pederson as head coach. If Kansas City wins, the Eagles must wait at least one more week to make the hiring official. The AFC championship game is Jan. 24. If the Chiefs win the next two weekends, the Eagles would need to wait until after the Super Bowl on Feb. 7. That time frame includes the Senior Bowl - a valuable week to evaluate prospects and network with other coaches - and comes during a ripe period to hire assistants.

THE TOP SEEDS join the playoff fray this week, including Peyton Manning, who has tied an obscure mark held by Tom Brady. All of the work done by the 15-1 Panthers would be rendered meaningless with a loss against one of the most dangerous No. 6 seeds in recent memory. Bring 'em on, says Carolina's star defensive back. He gets Seattle, we get what should be another terrific weekend of playoff football. Here's a preview: CHIEFS (12-5) at PATRIOTS (12-4) Seeds: Chiefs 5; Patriots 2. When: Saturday, 4:35 p.m. TV: CBS (Ian Eagle, Dan Fouts, Evan Washburn)

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - If the Eagles have concluded the interview portion of their coaching search and are just mulling over a final decision, as Doug Pederson suggested Tuesday, it would seem the longer it plays out the more it would benefit the Chiefs offensive coordinator. "Still open, you know, still open," Pederson said when asked where he stood with the Eagles after Sunday's interview. "They're still in the process. From what I'm hearing they have stopped all their interviews and now it's just a matter of them getting together collectively and making a decision.

THE PHILADELPHIa School District has a new chief financial officer. Uri Monson, now the top finance official for Montgomery County, will move into the long-vacant Philadelphia job next month. He will be paid $190,000 to manage the district's $3.2 billion budget. Superintendent William Hite said the district, which lost former CFO Matt Stanski at the end of the last school year, needs "a strong, thoughtful, and steady approach to its finances, given the instability of revenues.
