While working Monday at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., Castillo refused to confirm if he's still the Eagles' defensive coordinator.

"You got to go through (Eagles coach) Andy (Reid)," Castillo said, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I'm just working."

Castillo was the frequent target of criticism in his first year as defensive coordinator after serving 13 years as offensive line coach. The Eagles' defense finished the season ranked No. 8, but its uneven outings early in the season earned Castillo unwanted attention.

Though he hadn't given an interview since the Eagles' season ended, Castillo said Monday he was fine with the uncertainty of his job title.

"Anytime we can get up in the morning and we're healthy enough to fight, we're all all right," Castillo said.
