It looks like the Eagles may be needing a new quarterbacks coach next season.

Bill Lazor, who held that post this season, is a candidate to become Detroit's offensive coordinator under new Lions head coach Jim Caldwell.

Lazor, 41, has spent just one season with the Eagles, but had a big impact. Under his tutelage, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles enjoyed an outstanding season, throwing 27 touchdown passes against just two interceptions while earning a berth in the Pro Bowl.

Lazor, who also interviewed last week to become Miami's offensive coordinator, has never held that position in the NFL. He was a quarterbacks coach with Seattle (2008-09) and Washington (2006-07) after previously serving as an offensive assistant with Atlanta (2003) and the Redskins (2004-05).

He was an offensive coordinator in the college ranks with the University of Buffalo (2001-02) and Virginia (2010-12).

Lazor could supervise a talent-laden offense in Detroit that features quarterback Matthew Stafford, wide receiver Calvin Johnson and running back Reggie Bush.
