Eagles hired ex-Chargers OC Frank Reich as offensive coordinator.
The job had been his to lose from the start. Reich, 54, was fired earlier this month and made the scapegoat for the Chargers' offensive woes in 2015 when they finished 30th in rushing. Reality was San Diego's offensive line was ripped to shreds by injuries, and Melvin Gordon was a rookie. Reich isn't going to call plays for the Eagles, as new coach Doug Pederson will do that, but he'll be heavily involved in game-planning with Pederson. Jan 20 - 2:33 PM

Ex-Chargers OC Frank Reich is traveling to Philadelphia Tuesday night to meet with Eagles head coach Doug Pederson.

Reich is interviewing for the team's offensive coordinator position. It appears the job is his to lose. Reich had mixed results in his two years as San Diego's OC but injuries were his undoing in 2015. The Eagles are open to keeping Pat Shurmur on the staff, but not as the offensive coordinator. Pederson has already said he'll call his own plays in Philadelphia.

Ex-Chargers OC Frank Reich is expected to join Doug Pederson's staff in Philadelphia.

Recently fired by the Bolts, Reich will likely be Doug Pederson's offensive coordinator. We'd expect Pederson to call his own plays, but it's not for certain.

The Philadelphia Daily News reports new Eagles coach Doug Pederson "would like" ex-Chargers OC Frank Reich as his offensive coordinator.

Reich was the Chargers' scapegoat after the season, getting fired, while coach Mike McCoy and DC John Pagano kept their jobs. Reich was dealt a garbage hand in 2015, as his entire offensive line crumbled with injuries, the receiving corps couldn't stay healthy, and rookie Melvin Gordon legitimately looked bad. Reich and Pederson played together in Carolina. Pederson would likely call his own plays.
Jan 17 - 1:32 PM

Chargers fired OC Frank Reich.

We would've guessed DC John Pagano as the first to go. Instead, it's Reich, who coordinated the NFL's No. 9 offense in total yards but No. 26 offense in points scored. Reich, of course, deserves another chance because his offensive talent was decimated by injury, and still looked like one of the league's most-prolific units in the first half of the season. Coach Mike McCoy may take back a prominent offensive role with his revised staff.

The Jets will interview Chargers OC Frank Reich and Cardinals DC Todd Bowles for their head coaching vacancy this week.

Reich, who will interview on Wednesday, has already met with the Bills -- where he mostly backed up Jim Kelly in his playing days. Bowles is just starting interviews this week and is expected to draw heavy interest after his Cardinals were eliminated from the playoffs Saturday. The Jets have already interviewed Doug Marrone (the "perceived" front-runner per the Daily News), Dan Quinn, Tom Cable and Anthony Lynn. They want to talk to Ravens OC Gary Kubiak once Baltimore's playoff run is over. It's an underwhelming cast of characters.

The Bills have requested to interview Chargers OC Frank Reich for their head-coaching vacancy.

Reich, 53, is from New York and spent the first 10 seasons of his playing career as a member of the Bills. He wasn't a star, producing a 40:36 career TD:INT ratio, but was the backup to Hall of Famer Jim Kelly. Reich has been coaching since 2008, but has no previous head-coaching experience at the NCAA or NFL levels. He just wrapped up his first season as the Bolts' offensive coordinator.

The Jets will interview Chargers OC Frank Reich for their head-coaching vacancy.

Reich is also viewed as a "top candidate" for the Bills' HC vacancy. Per the NY Daily News' Manish Mehta, Reich's Jets interview will take place "at some point next week." 53 years old, Reich has mostly been a receivers and quarterbacks coach since his retirement. He spent 2014 as an offensive coordinator.

The Bills are expected to have "strong interest" in Chargers OC Frank Reich as Doug Marrone's head-coaching replacement.

It sounds like Marrone is going to the Jets, who already fulfilled the Rooney Rule by interviewing RBs coach Anthony Lynn for their vacancy. They can hire Marrone as soon as they please. Reich replaced Ken Whisenhunt as the Chargers' offensive coordinator in 2014. He is a former quarterback for the Bills.

Chargers promoted QBs coach Frank Reich to offensive coordinator.

The Bolts stayed in house to replace Ken Whisenhunt. A backup quarterback from 1985-1998, Reich has just six years of NFL-coaching experience, but helped revive Philip Rivers' career this season. Reich served as Peyton Manning's quarterbacks coach in Indianapolis from 2009-10. It's unknown if Reich or head coach Mike McCoy will call plays in 2014. Reich has zero play-calling experience.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Chargers will likely promote QBs coach Frank Reich to offensive coordinator.

The Titans hired OC Ken Whisenhunt away from the Bolts and made him their next head coach. Reich, 52, played quarterback in the NFL from 1985-1998 mostly as a backup. He began his coaching career in 2008 with the Colts and has also worked for the Cardinals. Reich just wrapped up his first season with the Chargers and was a major part of Philip Rivers' rebound year.
