Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson said he was satisfied with his interview Sunday for the Philadelphia Eagles’ head coaching job.
“It went great,” Pederson said. “I have a lot of respect for the organization and what they’re doing there.”
Pederson was on Andy Reid’s Eagles staff from 2009-2012, the final two seasons as quarterbacks coach, when he joined Reid in Kansas City in 2013. He was backup quarterback for the Eagles in 1999.
Never miss a local story.
Pederson said he’d have no problem separating the roles of coordinator and job candidate.
“It’s an honor, obviously, to be in the running with something like that,” Pederson said. “But I was also sitting there toward the end of the interview going, ‘I’ve got the New England Patriots to look at.’ So it was a lot easier to come back and start game planning.”
