Duce Staley asks the Eagles to release him from his contract
With the Philadelphia Eagles hiring former Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni as their new head coach, current deputy head coach / running backs coach Duce Staley is in a difficult position. Now it appears the Philadelphia game will be released from its current contract with the organization.
NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark was first on record, suggesting the coach had asked to be fired from his contract. Then Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network confirmed the coverage on Sunday morning.
After the organization split from Doug Pederson, Staley was among those surveyed for the vacant job as head coach. It wasn't the first time the former Eagles who ran back had an interview with the organization. In 2016, when he was the team's running backs coach, Staley interviewed the position of head coach. The team chose Pederson, but kept Staley in his role as running backs coach.
In 2018, Staley was promoted to deputy head coach for the Eagles while maintaining his position as the position manager for RBs.
There has been speculation that Staley could stay in Philadelphia under Sirianni if the team promoted him to offensive coordinator. This message indicates that the trainer is looking for another path. There are some potential positions for Staley as the offensive coordinator if this is the path he is looking to take. He could be seen as a replacement for Arthur Smith in Tennessee, or he could be part of the group that is taking over in Houston.
Another fascinating place would be Minnesota. With Gary Kubiak retired, the Vikings need a new OK. There are some internal options such as B. Klint Kubiak, but with the Viking style of play and Staley background, this could be a good solution.
