Philadelphia Eagles confirmed the sacking of Andy Reid


(Sporting Alert) As was reported on Sunday, Andy Reid has been fired after 14-years as head coach, the Philadelphia Eagles announced on Monday morning.

The Eagles’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Lurie will hold a press conference at noon Monday at the NovaCare Complex to talk about moving forward with the club.

Andy Reid won the most games of any head coach in Eagles history and he is someone I respect greatly and will remain friends with for many years to come,” Lurie said on

“But, it is time for the Eagles to move in a new direction.

“Coach Reid leaves us with a winning tradition that we can build upon. And we are very excited about the future.”

The Eagles, in the final game in the regular season, were hammered 42-7 by the New York Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium, condemning the club to a 4-12 record in the 2012 campaign.

“The search for the new coach of the Philadelphia Eagles will begin immediately,” Lurie added.
