Reid and Jauron coached together in Green Bay in 1992-94. Jauron was the *Associated Press' *Coach of the Year in 2001 when he led the Bears to a 13-3 record in the regular season. Chicago earned a first-round playoff bye that year before losing to Donovan McNabb and the Eagles in the NFC Divisional Playoff round.

He has been a coach in the NFL since 1985 when he served as the defensive backs coach in Buffalo after he played as a safety in the league from 1973-80 with Detroit and Cincinnati.

The Eagles have not commented on the report.
