If the Philadelphia Eagles are going to replace defensive coordinator Juan Castillo, it does not look like it will be with former Rams Head Coach Steve Spagnulo. Multiple outlets are reporting that Steve Spagnulo is set to join the New Orleans Saints.

Spagnulo has been linked to the Philadelphia Eagles since he was still the head coach of the St. Louis Rams. Spagnulo, who used to work for the Eagles, has maintained a house in Philadelphia, and has many other links to the area (his wife is from Philly.)

When first year defensive coordinator Juan Castillo was on the hot seat, fairly or not, rumors began to fly that Andy Reid would bring in Spagnulo, a former Super Bowl winning defensive coordinator for the Giants to replace Castillo.

All of those rumors began to fray over the past couple of weeks as Spagnulo became a candidate for other jobs. Spags interviewed in New Orleans and will reportedly accept the job there.

In the meantime, Juan Castillo’s future still hasn’t been decided. While the season has been over for the Eagles for a couple of weeks, coach Andy Reid has yet to speak about the team’s future. This has led to many speculating that the embattled defensive coordinator will not return for a second season.

If Reid’s plan was to bring in Spagnulo, it was just thwarted.
