Report: Jim Caldwell, Kevin O’Connell candidates for Eagles’ OC job

Mike Florio and Chris Simms look at where the Eagles went wrong in 2019 and explain how they can attack their weaknesses this offseason.

The Eagles are in search of a new offensive coordinator after dismissing Mike Groh on Thursday.

Jim Caldwell and Kevin O’Connell are candidates for the job, Tim McManus of ESPN reports. The team is expected to have a short list.

The Eagles ranked 14th in total offense, including 11th in passing, during an injury-plagued season.

The Dolphins still list Caldwell as assistant head coach/quarterbacks coach, but he took a leave of absence before the start of the season. Caldwell, 64, instead served the team in a consulting role.

He was Detroit’s head coach from 2014-17 and the Colts’ head coach from 2008-11.

O’Connell was Washington’s offensive coordinator in 2019, his first time in that role after four NFL seasons as a quarterbacks coach or offensive assistant.

He spent three seasons in Washington.
