Eagles Fire Andy Reid

Did those 14 years together mean nothing to the Philadelphia Eagles? Apparently not enough. The football team’s head coach, Andy Reid—the longest-tenured head coach in the NFL—has been kicked to the curb. On Monday morning, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie held a press conference to discuss the team’s decision to get rid of the coach, who led them to a record-breaking 140 victories, five NFC championship games, and a Super Bowl appearance, among other accolades, and called Reid “someone I respect greatly.” Reid wasn’t the only NFL casualty Monday. The New York Jets’ general manager, Mike Tannenbaum, got the ax, as did longtime Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith.
