Before he became the Ravens’ head coach, John Harbaugh was the Eagles’ defensive backs and special teams coach.
Now the Eagles’ secondary coach, Sean McDermott, is a leading candidate to become the Packers’ next defensive coordinator.
Green Bay already has interviewed former 49ers head coach Mike Nolan and former Bills head coach Gregg Williams for its vacant defensive coordinator job. Yet the man the Packers might wind up with is coaching today against the Giants.
McDermott is a logical choice. Few staffs have produced the quality of coaches that Philadelphia’s has. Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, who’s interviewing for head-coaching jobs, is a former Eagles linebackers coach.
Harbaugh was with the Eagles just last season. And now McDermott could be the next Eagles assistant to move on to bigger and better things.
