The Eagles could lose a pair of assistant coaches who have been crucial to their success. That's the cost of going 13-3.
Losing defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz or quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo would hurt the Eagles, and Vegas seems to think both have a good chance of finding a promotion.
Schwartz is 3/1 to be the next head coach of the Giants, according to odds released by Bovada on Wednesday. The favorite for the job is Patriots OC Josh McDaniels at 3/2, followed by Patriots DC Matt Patricia at 2/1 and then Schwartz.
DeFilippo made the list of two different teams with head coaching vacancies: the Bears and Lions.
DeFilippo is 9/2 to be named the Bears' next head coach. That ties him with McDaniels for second on Bovada's list, behind only former Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur (3/1). The Bears would make a lot of sense for DeFilippo. They have a ton invested in the future of young QB Mitchell Trubisky, who they traded up to 2 to draft last year.
DeFilippo is also 8/1 to get the Lions job. Patricia, Teryl Austin, McDaniels and Mike Vrabel all have better odds.
The NFL trend in recent years is to go with an offensive-minded head coach. Sean McDermott's hiring with the Bills last offseason was an exception. Schwartz, too, could be an exception because of his previous head coaching experience and fiery personality. Don't sleep on the Cardinals when it comes to Schwartz - he could step in to help replace the retired Bruce Arians' gusto.
