Per a report, the Eagles are interested in hiring Ohio State’s Ryan Day to replace Doug Pederson as the team’s new head coach.
As soon as the Philadelphia Eagles announced they were parting ways with head coach Doug Pederson, several names started being floated around as potential replacements. Well, here’s a new one for Philly fans that surely provides plenty of intrigue: Ryan Day.
Per a report, the Eagles indeed are interested in having Day make the jump from the college ranks to the NFC East. Could a potential deal get done here in the near future?

The Eagles are looking at hiring Ryan Day as their new head coach
This move surely would be something, as Day is fresh off leading the Buckeyes to the National Championship against Alabama. While the Crimson Tide rolled to a big win and another title for Nick Saban, what Day has been able to do in Columbus after taking over for Urban Meyer has been nothing short of impressive.
There’s a reason he’s been linked with multiple NFL teams. However, reports earlier this winter stats that Day was no interested in heading to the pros. At the same time, could an offer from the Eagles change things up for him?
Day is no stranger to Lincoln Financial Field, as he was with the organization as quarterbacks coach in 2015. That was only six years ago. As great as things are for Day at Ohio State, imagine if the Eagles were to make him a multi-year deal. Could he say no?
For now, everyone in Philadelphia will have to wait and see who Howie Roseman ends up hiring. It goes without saying, but there will be a ton of pressure on whoever lands the job to get the Eagles back to a top level.
