Eagles request to interview 49ers DC Robert Saleh

Jan 12, 2021 at 7:41 AM--

Add the Philadelphia Eagles to the list of teams interested in speaking with San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh about their head-coaching vacancy. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Eagles have requested permission to interview Saleh.

That once again leaves the Houston Texans as the only team with a head-coaching vacancy that has not requested to interview Saleh. The coach has met virtually with the Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Chargers, and New York Jets. The Jets are flying Saleh out for a second interview and first in-person interview today.

The Eagles fired their Super Bowl-winning head coach, Doug Pederson, on Monday. He spent five seasons with the team.

Josina Anderson reports that Saleh could fly to Florida, after his trip to the New York area, to meet with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie at his home.

The 49ers would receive compensatory third-round picks in 2021 and 2022, should Saleh be hired as a head coach. That is due to a recent measure rewarding the development of minority coaches and front-office executives.

We know that disgruntled Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson wanted his team's brain trust to interview Kansas Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy for its head coaching vacancy. That suggestion was initially ignored. The Texans didn't request to interview Bieniemy until after Watson expressed his frustration with the organization, which had come to him and asked for his involvement. Now, the Texans can't even speak with Bieniemy until the Chiefs are ousted from the playoffs or win it all in February. Apparently, Bieniemy wasn't the only head-coaching candidate suggested by Watson. According to
