Add former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith to the list of possible Eagles' head coaches.
The Eagles announced that they will interview Smith on Thursday in their quest to find Andy Reid's successor. Reid was hired by the Kansas City Chiefs last week.
Smith was surprisingly fired by the Bears last week after going 10-6 and barely missing the playoffs. In eight seasons in Chicago, Smith had an 81-63 record that included three NFC North titles, two NFC championship game appearances and a trip to the Super Bowl.
In addition, the Eagles are also scheduled to interview Indianapolis offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Seattle defensive coordinator Gus Bradley this week. They have received permission to talk to Cincinnati offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, but have not yet set up a meeting.
The Eagles have already talked to Atlanta special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong and defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, as well as Denver offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.
They reportedly spoke to Universithy of Oregon coach Chip Kelly and Penn State coach Bill O'Brien, but both opted to stay in college. Another candidate, former Syracuse coach Doug Marrone, was just hired by Buffalo.
