PHILADELPHIA - Like coach Andy Reid, the Eagles coordinators and position coaches also face uncertain futures.

If owner Jeffrey Lurie fires Reid, there is a good chance that assistants such as offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg will also be let go.

"Sometimes the end is the beginning of something new," Mornhinweg said Thursday. "But I honestly haven't gone there. It's up to us to make sure the players are ready for the New York Giants. It may not look that way from afar, but that's really important for us."

Mornhinweg, 50, is in his 10th season with the Eagles after a two-year stint as head coach of the Detroit Lions.

He joined the Eagles as a senior assistant to Reid in 2003, then became offensive coordinator/assistant head coach in 2006 after Brad Childress left to become Minnesota's head coach.

Mornhinweg has been a football coach on the college or pro levels since 1985.

"This is my life," Mornhinweg said. "This is what I do for a living. Coaching football is the only job I've ever had except when I worked at a gas station in south San Jose (Calif.) when I was in high school."

There is no guarantee Reid will be leaving, however.

When Lurie indicated that another poor season would not be acceptable, he also stated that he was not issuing an ultimatum. Reid still has one year left on his contract.

"I feel like coach Reid will be here," Eagles running back LeSean McCoy said Thursday. "That will be my mindset until I'm told otherwise."
