As expected, the Philadelphia Eagles announced Monday morning that they have parted ways with Andy Reid after 14-years of being the team’s head coach.
Team chairman and chief executive officer Jeffrey Lurie held a 12 p.m. press conference Monday at the NovaCare Complex to discuss the reasoning of Reid’s removal. Reid led the Eagles to six NFC East titles, five NFC Championship Games and Super Bowl XXXIX in 2004.
“Andy Reid won the most games of any head coach in Eagles’ history and he is someone I respect greatly and will remain friends with for many years to come,” said Lurie. “But, it is time for the Eagles to move in a new direction. Andy leaves us with a winning tradition that we can build upon. And we are very excited about the future.”
