Eagles hire Schwartz as def. coordinator

I really liked a lot of what Pederson had to say. He also confirmed that Jim Schwartz will serve as the team's defensive coordinator; the team has yet to settle on an offensive coordinator.

Lurie said the Eagles began with a list of 25 candidates that was narrowed down to 10.

On the fifth, Pederson was asked how much responsibility he had on the Chiefs' snail-paced touchdown drive late in their playoff loss to the Patriots on Saturday.

July 30 2011: The Eagles three Quarterback, Mike Kafka #3, Michael Vick #7 and Vince Young #9 talk with QB coach Doug Pederson during the Philadelphia Eagles Training Camp at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA on July 30, 2011. And free agency, as you know, you're going to lose some and you're going to gain some. "People that I can trust, coaches that I can trust, coaches that I can trust are doing the best things for their players".

"I do, I do", Pederson said about.

Pederson spent the past three years in Kansas City, where he helped quarterback Alex Smith have the best two years of his career in an offense that had two of the best years in franchise history.

"I've been very fortunate in that I've had a long enough career where I've been able to build up a little bit of a track record, and even maybe choosing where I could go", said Schwartz, who was out of football last season.

Pederson returned to Philly a decade later as an assistant under Reid and helped Michael Vick have his best season in 2010.

According to many reports, Murray's frustration with his use and role on the Eagles reached a boiling point in early December, when he reportedly sat next to and had a conversation with Eagles' owner Jeffrey Lurie to express said frustrations.

Pederson accepted the offer to become Philadelphia's coach last week.

"Our kids were thrilled honestly", Pederson said, explaining that his older two children are enthused to be back where they grew up before moving to Kansas City.

Pederson prepared McNabb to take over the job later in the season and the Eagles started a string of playoff appearances the following year. He also gave his thoughts on QB Sam Bradford, saying Bradford would "fit perfectly" in his system. "But he never wavered from that and I think that consistency has made him a successful football coach and those are the things that I want to bring here, the things that I learned from him that I can use here in my journey". Running backs coach Duce Staley also is expected to remain. At that time they did not announce who their head coach would be, a clear indication that whoever they had chosen was a staff member on a team still vying for ultimate victory in the National Football League playoffs.

With such great influence from Reid, will Pederson be Andy Reid 2.0 in Philadelphia. We want to knock back.

"I think when this happened a year ago, this was something I took to heart", Roseman said. "That guy works harder than anybody I've ever seen".
