According to Tim McManus, the Eagles have named offensive line coach Juan Castillo as their new defensive coordinator.
This is, um, surprising. Castillo, who was a linebacker at Texas A & I, hasn't coached on the defensive side of the football since he was a defensive coordinator in 1989 at Kingsville High School.
Howard Mudd will take over as offensive line coach.
I'm not even sure there is enough fodder to lampoon this decision, other than the fact that Reid and the Eagles continue to believe they have all the answers. The fact of the matter is Castillo is a guy who hasn't coached on the defensive side of the football in 22 years! Now he's going to be the top defensive coach for one of the top ten football teams on the planet. That is truth. And that is unbelievable.
This is like casting Zach Galifianakis in Natalie Portman's role as the female protagonist in Black Swan.
What's your best analogy?
