Eagles fire OC Groh

Offensive coordinator Mike Groh was fired by the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, one of two changes to the coaching staff.After being endorsed for his return in 2020 by head coach Doug Pederson, the Eagles made the surprising announcement that Groh and wide receivers coach Carson Walch would not return. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Pederson wanted the coaches back but owner Jeffrey Lurie did not.The team released a statement attempting to clarify the move.Pederson also clarified the team is very much committed to defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, who interviewed to become head coach of the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday.”After much consideration and discussion, I have decided to make a change at the offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach positions. It was not an easy decision for me to make and I appreciate everything that Mike Groh and Carson Walch contributed to the organization and to my staff. As I said yesterday, they were a big part of our success down the stretch this past season. This is one of the most difficult parts of the job and something that weighs on me, but ultimately I have to make decisions that I believe are in the best interest of the football team moving forward.
