Jerod Mayo? The linebacker?

Yes, the Eagles are reportedly interviewing him for the head coaching gig, according to Ian Rapoport:

Mayo could also be a defensive coordinator candidate. This is one of those “kill two birds with one stone” kind of interviews, where they can get a feel for the guy in general and then figure out which position he might be a better fit for (if any).

The former New England standout is 34 years old and took the Pats’ ILB gig in 2019. He was a really good player back in the day and went to two Pro Bowls while earning a Super Bowl ring in his final NFL season. Hiring him would definitely be a leap, but he’s highly regarded in NFL circles and there’s nothing wrong with the Eagles getting out in front here and granting him an interview. Due diligence and whatnot.
