Found January 01, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The Philadelphia Eagles have put together a list of coaching targets to replace the recently fired Andy Reid, and their search will apparently begin with Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator and former San Francisco 49ers coach Mike Nolan, reports Jay Glazer of FOX Sports. Eagles have asked permission to interview Falcons DC Mike Nolan, plan to interview him Friday — Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) January 1, 2013 Nolan is in his first season with the Falcons. The veteran coach has taken a defensive unit that ranked 18th in points allowed in 2011 to fifth this season. Nolan also has previous head coaching experience in the NFL, as he was with the 49ers from 2005-08. However, it wasn’t an especially successful stint, as he went 18-37 over that span. While the Falcons are in the playoffs, the club secured the No. 1 seed and corresponding first-round bye weeks ago. For this reason, Nolan will be available while his team enjoys some time off as the wild-card round approaches.
