Doug Pederson: Super Bowl-Winning Coach Becoming an Author

Just two years ago, it seemed like the football world was waiting patiently for Doug Pederson to fail. He hadn't yet coached an NFL game, but was considered by many to be a bad hire.  

A lot has changed since then. 

In his second season at the helm, Pederson led the Eagles to their first-ever Super Bowl championship, going from laughing stock to instant and forever hero. And publisher Hachette Books is banking on the thought that people will want to read about that. 

Pederson is writing a memoir, along with longtime NFL writer Dan Pompei, that will be released on Aug. 28. The book will be called "Fearless." 

According to the publisher, the book will not just chronicle the Super Bowl season, but will also look back on his career as a backup quarterback and assistant coach. 

In a statement released to the Associated Press, Pederson said he has always considered himself an "underdog." His entire team took on that persona during their unlikely run to winning Super Bowl LII a few months ago. 

Before Pederson's book comes out, backup quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles is releasing a memoir of his own, entitled "Believe It: My Journey of Success, Failure and Overcoming the Odds." That's set to release on June 26 and will highlight Foles' run to winning the Super Bowl and will likely be based in his christian faith.
