Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson will interview Duce Staley and Mike Groh for the vacant offensive coordinator position Monday, a source tells ESPN.
Pederson was considering keeping the offensive coordinator post open after Frank Reich left to become head coach of the Colts, but is now leaning toward having an OC, believing it best to have someone in that position given all of his day-to-day responsibilities. Pederson calls the plays for the Super Bowl champion Eagles.
Staley, the team's running backs coach, has been an assistant on the staff since 2011 and spent seven years with the organization as a player. A respected voice in the organization, the 42-year old Staley helped get Jay Ajayi up to speed after the Eagles acquired him at the trade deadline, while keeping veteran LeGarrette Blount invested and getting the most out of undrafted rookie Corey Clement, who scored six times in the regular season and had a pivotal 22-yard touchdown catch against the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.
Groh joined the Eagles this past offseason and gained immediate command of the wide receivers room. Alshon Jeffery (12 total touchdowns) responded to him, as he did in Chicago, but Groh's work with Nelson Agholor was the most noticeable. Agholor went from a bubble player to a formidable slot receiver, scoring eight touchdowns in the regular season.
There are no immediate plans to interview anyone else for the offensive coordinator post outside of Groh and Staley at this time, as Pederson feels comfortable with both candidates.
