Rumor Mill: Dirk Koetter


Rumor Mill is an aggregation of Eagles-related reports, rumors and wild speculation. The team does not endorse these items.

According to FOX Sports NFL insider Alex Marvez, the Eagles are planning to interview Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, a candidate the team reportedly had interest in during its 2013 coaching search.

Now in his ninth NFL season, Koetter just concluded his first year with Tampa Bay. In 2015, the Bucs were the fifth-ranked offense, putting up 375.9 yards per game. Rookie quarterback Jameis Winston threw for 4,042 yards, 22 touchdowns and for an 84.2 passer rating under the offensive coordinator's command.

Koetter spent three seasons as the offensive coordinator in Atlanta before joining the Buccaneers, where he was part of a 2012 staff that helped lead the team to a 13-3 record and an NFC Championship Game appearance. Throughout the course of his tenure with the Falcons, the team cumulatively ranked in the top five in completion percentage (67.4), third-down conversion percentage (44.1) and passing yards (277.2 per game).

The coach also had success during his five seasons as offensive coordinator of the Jaguars from 2007-11. In his first year, Jacksonville set franchise records in points per game (25.7) and total offense per game (357 yards). The position marked his first in the NFL after a 22-year college coaching career, nine seasons of which were spent as a head coach at Arizona State (2001-06) and Boise State (1998-2000).

This article will be updated with all of the latest rumors involving Koetter.
