Eagles fire coach Andy Reid after 14 seasons

PHILADELPHIA – Andy Reid has been fired after 14 seasons coaching the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Eagles made the announcement Monday. Team owner Jeffrey Lurie said, “It is time for the Eagles to move in a new direction.”

Reid is due to make $6 million in 2013 in the final year of his contract. He is the franchise leader in wins (140) and winning percentage (.578), and led the Eagles to six division titles and five NFC championship games, as well as to the Super Bowl in 2004.

Lurie put Reid on notice after last season’s 8-8 record. The Eagles slumped to 4-12 this season, forcing Lurie to make the move.

Lurie callrf Reid “someone I respect greatly and will remain friends with for many years to come.”

Reid inherited a 3-13 team in 1999, drafted Donovan McNabb with the No. 2 overall pick in that year’s draft and quickly turned the franchise into a title contender.
