AP source: Doug Pederson accepts Eagles’ coaching offer

Sports

January 15th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Kansas City offensive coordinator Doug Pederson has accepted the Philadelphia Eagles’ offer to become their coach, a person with knowledge of the decision tells The Associated Press.  The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because the Eagles have not officially announced the hiring. Pederson can’t be officially hired as long as the Chiefs are in the playoffs. Kansas City plays at New England on Saturday.

Pederson started nine games at quarterback for the Eagles in 1999 and began his NFL coaching career as an assistant under Andy Reid in Philadelphia in 2009. Pederson followed Reid to Kansas City in 2013. Philadelphia also interviewed Adam Gase, who was hired by Miami; Ben McAdoo, who was hired by the New York Giants; Tom Coughlin; and two of the Eagles’ assistant coaches during the 2015 season under Chip Kelly: Pat Shurmur and Duce Staley.

Sports

January 14th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Peter Jok scored 19 of his 23 points in the first half to help No. 16 Iowa build a huge lead and the Hawkeyes went on to rout No. 4 Michigan State 76-59 on Thursday night. The Hawkeyes (13-3, 4-0 Big Ten) dominated the Spartans for the second time in two weeks and beat them on the road for the first time since 1993, ending an 18-game losing streak.

Michigan State (16-2, 3-2) was down by 22 points at halftime, its largest deficit at home since at least the 1996-97 season and its biggest anywhere in the regular season since trailing at Michigan by 23 points at halftime in 1997, according to STATS.

Denzel Valentine had a relatively lackluster game with 14 points, five assists and four rebounds for the stunned Spartans.

Chiefs’ Pederson focused on Patriots, not Philly job

Sports

January 13th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson says his interview for the vacant head coaching job in Philadelphia went “great,” but he insists he is focused on the New England Patriots. The Chiefs visit the reigning Super Bowl champions for a playoff game Saturday.

Pederson interviewed for the Philadelphia job Sunday. He started nine games at quarterback for the Eagles in 1999, and began his NFL coaching career under Andy Reid in 2009 as a quality control coach. Pederson followed Reid to Kansas City in 2013 as his offensive coordinator.

The Eagles have also interviewed Tom Coughlin, Duce Staley, Pat Shurmur and Ben McAdoo. Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase also interviewed before taking the job in Miami.
