Eagles Coordinator Is Potential Head Coach Candidate At UNLV

Written by Tony Ghaul

The Las Vegas Journal-Review reports Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Shane Steichen could be on the short list of Head Coach candidates at UNLV.

UNLV fired Marcus Arroyo following a 5-7 season. Arroyo went 7-23 in three seasons as the Revels Head Coach. Steichen played QB for UNLV. He also was a student assistant and offensive graduate assistant for the Rebels.

Last week, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported the Eagles could be in position to lose Steichen: “The Eagles’ offense has only improved under coordinator Shane Steichen’s watch.”

Two weeks ago, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero also said Steichen is a head coach candidate to watch: “Steichen has overseen the Eagles’ offensive rise since taking over play-calling duties during the 2021 season and has a good reputation going back to his days with the Chargers.”

Steichen has worked wonders with QB Jalen Hurts, who’s emerged as an MVP candidate.
