Post SeasonEdit

Shortly after the season ended Head coach Rich Kotite was fired. There was rumors that the Eagles new owner, Jeffrey Lurie would not keep him on as coach. His fate was sealed when after a 7 and 2 start the Eagles lost the last 7 games off the season and missed the playoffs.

During the few weeks the Eagles would interview outside the organization for a replacement. They had to wait to until the Super Bowl was played to talk to candidates from the teams in the playoffs. Less than a week after Super Bowl XXIX won by the San Francisco 49ers the Eagles hired their Defensive Coordinator, Ray Rhodes.
