NFL head coach tracker
The Andy Reid era is over in Philadelphia. Which other coaches could lose their jobs in the days ahead? More ...
"Whatever he chooses will be the right thing," Reid said in regard to Lurie's decision. "He's always done things for the best interest of the Eagles, and I completely understand either way."
Reid, meanwhile, doesn't figure to be out of work for long. Multiple reports have suggested Reid is interested in the San Diego Chargers job, but NFL.com's Albert Breer reported that interest doesn't appear to be mutual. Reid will want a lot of personnel control, and that wouldn't be the situation in San Diego.
Lurie surely regrets bringing back Reid for this season. The Eagles owner publicly read Reid the riot act after last season and said an 8-8 record wouldn't be acceptable. No one had any idea that things would get much, much worse.
