FORMER Fox 29 traffic reporter Kacie McDonnell has a new love interest. You may recall, she moved from Philly to Kansas City last year to be closer to then-boyfriend Aaron Murray , quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. Months later, the pair announced their engagement, but, alas, by January it was over. McDonnell has now been seen with a celebrity from another sport - Kansas City Royals' slugging first baseman Eric Hosmer . Both McDonnell and Hosmer confirmed rumors by posting pictures on social media of themselves getting up-close and personal over the weekend.

THERE WERE 20 to 25 candidates "that we spent a lot of time on," when the Eagles made a list of head-coaching possibilities, Ron Jaworski said Friday. He said a thorough vetting process knocked the candidates down to the half-dozen who were interviewed, with Doug Pederson emerging as the eventual choice. Jaworski served as a "special adviser" to the search committee of team chairman Jeffrey Lurie, team president Don Smolenski and vice president Howie Roseman. Jaworski said veteran former NFL general manager Bill Polian also advised, though Polian did not sit in on interviews.

After the season ended, Eagles management told tight end Zach Ertz that the team wanted to sign him to a contract extension during the offseason. Ertz expected it to take longer than three weeks, but the Eagles followed through on Monday. Ertz signed a five-year extension through the 2021 season that will pay him $42.5 million with $20 million guaranteed, according to a league source. The deal makes Ertz one of the highest-paid tight ends in the NFL and also fortifies the 2013 second-round pick as a foundation piece for the franchise.

Doug Pederson doesn't know Sam Bradford. He hasn't met Sam Bradford yet. He first did a deep dive on Sam Bradford the Quarterback in 2010, when Pederson was an offensive quality-control coach for the Eagles and Bradford was leaving Oklahoma for the NFL draft as the No. 1 overall pick. The Eagles were never going to get Bradford in that draft, but Pederson had researched him anyway, poring over every throw of Bradford's terrific college career, forming an impression that Pederson carried with him Tuesday to his introductory news conference as the Eagles head coach.

Doug Pederson stood in the front of the NovaCare Complex auditorium for more than an hour Tuesday afternoon. He thanked lots of people and answered question after question about the most high-profile job he has ever held. Sure, he once opened a season as an NFL starting quarterback right here in Philadelphia, but nothing he did or said mattered much, which was good because he never did or said much that mattered. Pederson was Andy Reid's chosen body and mind to bridge the gap to the start of Donovan McNabb's career.

AT 2 P.M. Tuesday, Jeffrey Lurie will introduce the Eagles' 23rd head coach, Doug Pederson, at a NovaCare news conference. Presumably, Lurie also will entertain questions about where his franchise is headed, why Howie Roseman is again in charge of personnel, and why Roseman hasn't been available to reporters since rejoining the football side of Lurie's operation upon the firing of Chip Kelly three weeks ago. It ought to be a fun time for all. ...

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.

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.

No one knows. Doug Pederson will be the Eagles' next head coach, and no one knows how he'll fare. Again: no one. Anyone who says anything else is selling you a knockoff Rolex. People will pass their judgments, of course. People who have played with Pederson when he was a journeyman quarterback, who have coached alongside him, who have talked football with him, will endorse him. People who follow the Eagles and root for the Eagles will hope for the best with him. Their endorsements and hope offer no tangible indication of whether Pederson will be a good head coach or a bad one. People who have played with Pederson or been around him or who are in or around the NFL and are paid to deliver opinions - usually at the highest possible decibel level - will blast the hire.
