Report: Eagles Eye Another Coach for Wide Receiver Opening

The Eagles reportedly interviewed Bills receivers coach Sanjay Lal on Wednesday to fill the space left after they fired Greg Lewis. 

Go ahead and add another name of interest to the list. 

According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, the Eagles are interested in interviewing Rams WRs/passing game coordinator Mike Groh for the opening. 

Groh, 45, was with the Rams in 2016 after spending three seasons coaching the Bears' wide receivers. 

With the Rams' hiring Sean McVay as their head coach on Thursday, it seems the staff already in place in LA might be looking for work. 

While Lewis had very little NFL experience and had never been an NFL position coach before the Eagles hired him, Lal and McVay have much more experience. It seems pretty clear that's a goal in hiring the next guy.

Groh is the son of former Virginia head coach Al Groh. Mike Groh rose to the level of offensive coordinator with the Cavaliers under his father. 

During his four seasons as an NFL wide receivers coach, Groh has worked with Alshon Jeffery and Kenny Britt, two of the biggest names who will hit free agency in March.
