Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg has a relationship with Holmgren because they were both developed under the tutelage of former San Francisco 49ers Hall of Fame head coach Bill Walsh. They both believe in the west coast offense.
For the third year in a row the Eagles has broken the record for the number of points scored in a season by the Birds offense.
Heckert was here in Philadelphia with Mornhinweg for a number of years. He had a good working relationship with Mornhinweg and you would figure that the Eagles offensive coordinator would be on the list.
“The Browns are expected to look at candidates from the Holmgren tree, including ESPN analyst Jon Gruden, Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and former Carolina Panthers coach John Fox. Holmgren, Gruden, Mornhinweg and Fox are represented by the same agent, Bob LaMonte.”
