According to reports, Duce Staley has asked out of his deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Staley has spent the majority of his life in Philadelphia and after not getting a chance to become the Eagles head coach, this news should come as no surprise.
Duce spent seven years of his playing career as a running back for the Eagles followed by 10 years as an Eagles coach. Staley is under contract with the Eagles. So if the Eagles wanted to stop him from leaving, they certainly can, but given the team’s history with Duce, I would hope that the Eagles let him explore other opportunities.
Number one on the list of possible destinations for Staley would be the Chicago Bears, who have reportedly expressed interest in adding Staley to their coaching staff. Duce has several connections with the Bears, given the fact that fellow assistant coach, Matt Nagy, is currently the Bears head coach. Staley also previously worked with Bears offensive coordinator Bill Lazor and quarterback coach John DeFilippo.
With all of the recent news of additions to the Eagles head coaching staff flowing in it looks like new head coach Nick Sirianni is making a brand new coaching staff for the Eagles. If that’s any indication on what he plans to do in the coming days, it’s likely that we will see Duce leave Philadelphia.
That’s all we know right now. Updates should be coming in soon. We will keep you updated on Philly Sports Reports social medias.
