Report: Eagles' Reid won't return
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)
Reid is scheduled to meet with owner Jeffrey Lurie on Monday to discuss his future and an official announcement will come afterward, according to one person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because a final agreement hasn't been reached. That person says there's a chance Reid might remain with the team in some capacity.
However, former Eagles player-turned-reporter for the NBC affiliate in Philadelphia, Vai Sikahema, texted Reid during the fourth quarter, and Reid replied via text message after the game denying the reports.
"Haven't been let go, will talk with Jeff tomorrow," the text read.
Reid is due to make $6 million in 2013 in the final year of his contract. He said he wants to coach next year, but it's possible Lurie could persuade him to take a year off and perhaps help out in the front office in an ''advisory'' role.
Eagles spokesman Derek Boyko denied several reports that Lurie has already fired Reid, saying it's ''absolutely, 100 percent'' untrue.
