Steve Spagnuolo is expected to join the takeover as the leader of the Philadelphia Eagles defense by the end of the week, according to Philly.com.
The 52-year-old former head coach previously served as a defensive coach for the Philadelphia Eagles from 1999-2006 under Andy Reid. According to the Philly.com report, it is believed he will replace current defensive coordinator Juan Castillo.
Spagnuolo was just recently fired after an unsuccessful three-year stint as the head coach of the St. Louis Rams. Despite a 7-9 finish in 2010, his overall 11-38 record with the Rams forced the club to re-evaluate their future.
