The Eagles interviewed New York Giants linebackers coach Jim Herrmann for their defensive coordinator position, according to various reports. He is the first known individual to meet with the Eagles for the opening. Herrmann, 52, has been with the Giants for the last four seasons. He spent three seasons with the New York Jets as their linebackers coach before that. He is best known for his 20-year tenure at Michigan, his alma mater. Herremann was the defensive coordinator in Ann Arbor for nine seasons and ran a 3-4 scheme there.

The company that supplied electricity to the Super Bowl says the blackout that halted the big game was caused by a device it installed specially to prevent a power failure. But Entergy Corp. stopped short of taking all the blame and said Friday that it was looking into whether the electrical relay at fault had a defect. The relay had been installed as part of a project begun in 2011 to upgrade the electrical system serving the Superdome in anticipation of the championship game.

First, the Atlanta Falcons hired Mike Smith as head coach. Then, they rehired Brian VanGorder to be their defensive coordinator. Smith, Jacksonville's defensive coordinator since 2003, replaces Bobby Petrino, who left the Falcons last month after just 13 games of a 4-12 season. VanGorder left South Carolina as defensive coordinator to return to the Falcons where he spent the past season as their linebackers coach. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier hired Van Gorder last month during Week 15 of the NFL season, but VanGorder worked Atlanta's last two games.

Northeast football standout Deion Barnes will continue to wear black-and-red jerseys, or switch to white and blue. On Thursday, his 18th birthday, the 6-foot-5, 230-pound defensive end will choose Georgia or Penn State at a news conference scheduled for 8 a.m. in Northeast's auditorium. "A lot of people think I'm going to Penn State, but I don't pay any mind to that," he said. "They don't know what's going on in my mind. " Barnes had narrowed his list to five schools, with Pittsburgh, Michigan, and South Carolina the other finalists.

The New England Patriots were dismissed as mediocre, called lucky when they moved through the playoffs, and seen as sacrificial lambs in the Super Bowl. Yesterday, the Patriots were simply Super Bowl champions to the estimated 1.2 million fans who packed the streets of Boston and City Hall Plaza. The players took the chance to revel in their 20-17 win over the heavily favored St. Louis Rams and insisted there was nothing improbable about it. "We kept our mouths shut and got the job done when nobody gave us a chance in hell of doing it," said wide receiver Troy Brown, as he held the Super Bowl trophy aloft.

Miami Dolphins coach Dave Wannstedt turned to an old friend yesterday, hiring Norv Turner as offensive coordinator and assistant head coach. Wannstedt and Turner were assistants on the Dallas Cowboys' 1992 Super Bowl championship team and worked together at Southern California in 1983-84. Turner was the head coach of the Washington Redskins from 1993 until he was fired late in the 2000 season. He replaces Chan Gailey, who spent two seasons at Miami before accepting the head job at Georgia Tech.

NEW ORLEANS - Super Bowl week has come and gone and the Eagles still haven't hired a defensive coordinator. At least, there haven't been any reports that new coach Chip Kelly has found a leader for his defense. The delay had some observers speculating that the Eagles were waiting for Super Bowl XLVII to end before they could tab one of the Baltimore Ravens or San Francisco 49ers assistants as defensive coordinator. The Eagles are interested in the Ravens' Ted Monachino, according to NFL sources, but Baltimore could always block the up-and-coming linebackers coach from leaving.

The Eagles interviewed Cleveland Browns linebackers coach Billy Davis for their defensive coordinator opening on Sunday, an NFL source said. The team had requested permission to meet with Davis last week but waited until Sunday to sit down with the 47-year old coach, according to the source. Davis has experience as an NFL defensive coordinator. Before he took the linebackers job in Cleveland in 2011, he was the Arizona Cardinals' coordinator from 2009-10. He also ran San Francisco's defense from 2005-06.

UNTIL CHIP KELLY holds that long-promised news conference with his entire staff, and presumably fields a few questions, the mystery will linger: Why did it take 3 weeks to hire a defensive coordinator, from a nonplayoff team, who was available even before Kelly was hired? An NFL source Thursday confirmed the report by Geoff Mosher, of CSNPhilly.com - Bill Davis, the Cleveland Browns' linebackers coach last season, is Kelly's defensive coordinator. Later in the day, the same source confirmed a Footballscoops.com report that Alabama offensive-line coach Jeff Stoutland is coming to the Eagles, so the staff would seem pretty much complete.

The Eagles still don't have a defensive coordinator - or any assistant coaches, if you're waiting for confirmation from the team - but they kicked off the annual deluge of offseason roster moves Wednesday by releasing tackle Demetress Bell. Bell's release did not come as a surprise. Signed to replace the injured Jason Peters, Bell was a terrible fit and started in only five games. The Eagles trimmed $9.6 million from their 2013 salary cap by cutting Bell. The search for a defensive coordinator, meanwhile, trudged on with only a little more clarity by the end of Wednesday.

SCRATCH ANOTHER theory from the Chip Kelly defensive coordinator hiring process sweepstakes. This time, it's the thought that Kelly was just waiting for national signing day to arrive, so he could announce the hiring of a college coordinator who didn't want to leave his current program in the lurch at a crucial time. (One who presumably wouldn't mind leaving signees in the lurch.) Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has been mentioned most prominently. The Eagles might end up hiring Grantham, but in speaking with reporters Wednesday in Athens, Ga., Grantham said he hasn't gotten to the point with any NFL team where "I feel like I have to contractually say something," Macon.com reported.

MOBILE, Ala. - Chip Kelly said Monday that he couldn't describe his ideal defensive coordinator with just one word. But given the opportunity to describe the one dominant characteristic he is seeking in the leader of his defense, Kelly invented a word. " Shutoutability ," he said. "That would be the one overriding quality. And I have no idea how we can define that. " Webster's might define it as "the ability to shut out one's opponent. " But Kelly, who was in Alabama for his first week of Senior Bowl practices as the Eagles' new head coach, likely had something else in mind.
