SPAGNUOLO COULD RETURN TO EAGLES IF FIRED BY RAMS: REPORT (http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/giants/spagnuolo_could_return_to_eagles_4tqEmsaVSNBoH70cR t4ZFM?CMP=OTC-rss&FEEDNAME=)

"St. Louis Rams head coach<a class="topiclink" href="/t/Steve_Spagnuolo"> Steve
Spagnuolo </a>is likely to return to Philadelphia to become the Eagles'
defensive coordinator if, as expected, he is fired at the end of the season.<div style="BORDER-BOTTOM: medium none; TEXT-ALIGN: left; BORDER-LEFT: medium none; BACKGROUND-COLOR: #ffffff; COLOR: #000000; OVERFLOW: hidden; BORDER-TOP: medium none; BORDER-RIGHT: medium none; TEXT-DECORATION: none">


Spagnuolo, an Eagles assistant from 1999-2006, is "all but certain" to
replace first-year coordinator Juan Castillo in Philly as Rams owner Stan
Kroenke clears the deck in St. Louis, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. (http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2011/dec/26/changes-coming-chargers-brass/?utm_source=twitterfeed&amp;utm_medium=twitter) Spagnuolo left
Philadelphia to become the Giants defensive coordinator. </p>


The 52-year-old's reputation boomed after helping to mastermind the Giants'
shock victory over the undefeated New England Patriots in Super Bowl (/t/Super_Bowl)XLII, has led St. Louis to only 10 wins in
his first three seasons as a head coach.</p>

The same report suggests Kroenke will also fire general manager Billy Devaney
and move for A.J. Smith, should the Chargers GM be fired by San Diego along with
head coach Norv Turner.</p>


But the newspaper quoted league and agent sources as saying Smith will end
his association with Turner to instead hire<a class="topiclink" href="/t/ESPN">
ESPN </a>analyst Jon Gruden (/t/Jon_Gruden)as his
head coach should he be hired as Rams general manager.</p>


Sources said that Gruden, the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders (/t/Oakland_Raiders)head coach, plans
to return to the NFL next year despite signing an exclusive five-year contract
with the sports network in October, which is scheduled to begin in September
2012."</p></div>

Why are some reports saying he's likely to go to the eagles &amp; others saying we are a candidate as well?

I will kill someone if he goes to Philly................

Anyone else think Gruden would be a good fit for us? i do personally. Great offensive mind and likes to have an aggressive defense. Not to mention he LOVES this Giant football team and would be very a passionate coach. I think Eli would play great consistent football under him.

Roanoke...This article has already been discussed. It has no credibility at all in my opinion. Why would "league sources" talk about the possible moves of coaches etc.. when such knowledge would result directly from tampering, which is a serious violation of league rules?</P>


Any knowledge of the possible moves mentioned can only come from tampering (discussions with employees of other teams). No way ANYONE could have knowledge of that...especially anyone from the league. It suggests that a current head coach in the NFL has discussed with another team (or even negotiated) the likelihood of becoming their DC. Makes not a shread of sense.</P>


The only interest the league would have is to punish the involved parties...not the passing of information to some scrub at a SD newspaper.</P>


You know I love ya but this is pure nonsense.</P>

Also, there is no chance Spags spoke to anyone in any position of authority with the Eagles about a job that is currently NOT open. That is in very poor taste, and generally one coach will not do that to another. It's an unwritten rule.
