Eagles To Interview Lovie Smith On ThursdayBREAKING NEWS, Coaching Staff, Eagles, News Tuesday, January 8th, 2013
The Eagles will interview former Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith on Thursday. Smith is a defensive coach at heart, so he’ll to have to overcome Jeffrey Lurie’s desire to hire an offensive minded head coach.
I regard him as a long shot.
Defense wasn’t Smith’s problem in Chicago where he always had more defense than offense. He was fired after a season where he team had a 10-6 record, but missed the playoffs. There was a lot of disappointment in the city because the Bears started 7-1, but found a way to miss out on the playoffs.
Eagles could learn from how Smith encourages his defensive players to always attack the football.
