During Doug Pederson's introductory press conference as the Philadelphia Eagles' new head coach, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie announced that the team would be conducting a search for a new "player personnel head."
According to a source, before the Eagles put that search on hold, they interviewed NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah for the job.
A spokesperson for the Eagles confirmed that the interview took place, but said that the Eagles did not make a formal offer. Jeremiah subsequently accepted a new long-term contract with NFL Network.
The Eagles previously also interviewed Brandon Hunt, who is currently the "pro scouting coordinator" for the Steelers.
