EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - At 5:01 p.m. on Sunday, Andy Reid walked through the double doors of the visitors' locker room at MetLife Stadium. He greeted his wife and daughter. Together, the three sat on a golf cart and waited to be taken to the team bus. From there, Reid returned to South Philadelphia and prepared for his exit as coach of the Eagles. One hour earlier, Reid experienced the worst loss of the worst season in his 14 years as coach. The New York Giants dominated the Eagles, 42-7, and Reid's team finished 4-12, the poorest record of his career.

"Treatments, treatments, treatments," Beckham said. "Just make sure you stay on top of it. That's really it. Just make sure you stay on top of it all and come out for Monday.

With one of the most popular coaching candidates off the market after Adam Gase accepted the Miami Dolphins job on Saturday, the Eagles' search now includes the most accomplished coach on the market: Tom Coughlin. The Eagles received permission from the New York Giants to interview Coughlin, according to a league source. Coughlin, 69, resigned Monday after 12 seasons and two Super Bowl championships with the Giants. Because he resigned with one year remaining on his contract, he needs permission to interview with other teams.

Riley Cooper, who was an afterthought in the Eagles offense for the first three games, has slowly returned to a more prominent role. Lauded by the coaching staff for his blocking, the 6-foot-4, 230-pound sixth-year receiver helped jump-start the offense by scoring the first touchdown on a 32-yard first-quarter reception from Sam Bradford during Monday's 27-7 win over the New York Giants at Lincoln Financial Field. Bradford took the snap from center, which usually indicates an Eagles running play.

It was an interception at the worst time possible. Eli Manning threw the pass. Rueben Randle was supposed to catch it. The ball was placed slightly behind Randle, but he could have caught it had he run a precise route. The Eagles had a similar play last season when Mark Sanchez threw an ill-advised pass to the lazy-route running Miles Austin and the ball was picked off in the end zone. Austin was released a week later. Randle's dubious moment occurred around the same time, but survived until the end of the season.

Philadelphia has been selected as the host city for the final of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, according to a source with direct knowledge of the decision. Lincoln Financial Field beat out Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium, Atlanta's Georgia Dome and most notably East Rutherford, N.J.'s MetLife Stadium. The home of the NFL's New York Giants and Jets had been the overwhelming favorite to host the title game of the signature tournament for North and Central Americans national teams. But officials in Philadelphia worked extremely hard to snatch the big game out of the Meadowlands' grasp.

As a free agent, Rueben Randle didn't earn much security, but he won't be lacking confidence during his first season with the Eagles. The 24-year-old wide receiver, who spent his first four NFL seasons with the rival New York Giants, signed a one-year contract with the Eagles last week. The deal is worth $1.025 million, with $500,000 guaranteed. With incentives, it could be worth more than $3 million. Randle held a news conference on Friday at the NovaCare Complex and did not hesitate when asked if he thinks he will be a starter at a position that could use an upgrade.

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.

Tom Coughlin stopped short of saying farewell last Tuesday. He spent 12 years as the New York Giants' head coach - almost all of his 60s - and put two Super Bowl trophies on their mantel. His tenure ended after missing the postseason for four consecutive years, and the stage was set for the 69-year-old to exit with grace. That's not Coughlin. He arrived five minutes early - a Coughlin custom - and offered 20 minutes of enthusiasm that made him appear more of an up-and-coming coordinator than a future Hall of Famer looking ahead to retirement.

The Eagles have interviewed inside candidates, outside candidates, a running backs assistant, offensive coordinators, and a former head coach. But for the first time since they began their search for a new head coach, they met with a Super Bowl winner. The team confirmed that it interviewed former New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin on Monday. Coughlin was the sixth coach to interview for the vacancy, joining Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson, Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, Eagles running back coach Duce Staley, and former Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase.

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.

"He called me," said Rhule, then a Temple assistant, now Temple's head coach, but for one season in between, the 2012 season, the Giants assistant offensive line coach.

Whether Adam Gase is the Eagles' No. 1 target or not, he was the first outside candidate to interview for the team's head coaching vacancy and he is likely scheduled to be the first to meet with Eagles brass a second time. Gase, who met with team leaders on Tuesday, will interview with the Eagles again this weekend, according to an NFL Network report. The Eagles didn't confirm the follow-up interview. But there is obvious interest. Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, vice president of football operations Howie Roseman and team president Don Smolenski interviewed Gase for approximately eight hours on Tuesday, sources familiar with the meeting said.
