The Philadelphia Eagles have selected Kellen Moore, a former defensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Chargers and Dallas Cowboys, to manage their offense in 2024. This move comes after the Eagles quickly fired Brian Johnson following a poor season finale.

The Eagles, previous year’s NFC Champions, were defeated by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wild Card Round. Hurts and his team could only muster nine points against the Bucs, capping their season in the worst conceivable way.

Moore left just a few days later, and rumors concerning Sirianni’s future persisted. With Bill Belichick and Mike Vrabel available, firing Sirianni appeared to be a viable option for the franchise. However, team owner Jeffrey Lurie chose to maintain Sirianni while dismissing his offensive and defensive coordinators instead.

This move will impact incoming Chargers head coach Jim Harbaugh, who was hired to return to the NFL earlier this week. Now, Moore has the job of helping Hurts rediscover his talent after a tough season with a career-high 15 interceptions.

The two new team members mean Sirianni has to show what he’s made of this season. He’s feeling the pressure, especially with big names like Belichick and Vrabel possibly waiting to step in.

Talking about the challenge, the coach shared: “In my mind, you better believe I’m thinking, ‘how do I re-prove myself?'”

He added: “I was a young coach that Mr. [Jeff] Lurie and Howie [Roseman] and this organization trusted to give the job to. I had to prove myself that this guy can lead the organization like they asked me to. I had to prove myself from then.”
