Philadelphia head coach Doug Pederson indicated the Eagles would enter next season without an offensive coordinator after Frank Reich accepted the head coaching job of the Indianapolis Colts.

Former Eagles RB LeSean McCoy endorsed Staley for the offensive coordinator position over the weekend.

Now, according to this report from ESPN's Tim McManus, the Eagles have in fact made a decision to promote Groh to offensive coordinator.

Groh, 46, was hired by the Eagles previous year to be the wide receivers coach.

The change comes after the Super Bowl LII champions had two of their offensive coaches take jobs elsewhere. He interviewed with Pederson on Monday, along with running backs coach and former Eagles standout Duce Staley.

Press Taylor, the Eagles assistant quarterbacks coach, was reported last week to be replacing DeFilippo as quarterbacks coach.

As offensive coordinator, Groh will work closely to finalize gameplans and strategy with Pederson, who will continue to call plays for the Eagles.

Mike Groh, previously the wide receivers coach with Chicago and Philly, will be the Eagles new offensive coordinator.

Groh played college football but his coaching carreer started early, as he was an assistant for the Jets under his father, Al Groh.
