Only four teams are left standing in the chase for the Lombardi Trophy after this weekend's Divisional Round games. Let's take a quick look at how the results directly impacted the Eagles and their search for a new head coach ...
• The Broncos' double overtime loss to the Ravens means that Denver offensive coordinator Mike McCoy is free to meet with interested teams. The Eagles interviewed McCoy on January 6 in Denver during the Broncos' bye week.
• The Seahawks’ loss to the Falcons on Sunday frees up Seattle defensive coordinator Gus Bradley. The Eagles had been granted permission to talk to Bradley, but the team did not confirm whether an initial interview ever took place. The Eagles did interview Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan and special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong on January 2. The Eagles will be allowed to interview Nolan and Armstrong again during the Super Bowl bye week if Atlanta wins the NFC Championship this weekend since they have already conducted one interview with those candidates.
If the Eagles have an interest in an NFL assistant whose team advances to the Super Bowl and they have not already conducted an interview, they must wait until after the Super Bowl to speak to him. The Eagles have not requested permission to speak with any assistants with the 49ers, Patriots or Ravens.
• The assistants from the Green Bay Packers and Houston Texans are now also available. The Eagles did not previously request permission to speak to any of either team's assistants.
