Andy Reid reigns

Here’s one to warm the hearts of Eagles fans on another cold, snowy winter morning.

Or cause indigestion, as the case may be.

Andy Reid is now the longest-tenured coach in the NFL.

That’s right, Big Red is now No. 1, at least at something, even if he has yet to win a Super Bowl title.

Reid assumes the top spot when it comes to longest-running NFL coaches after the Tennessee Titans parted ways with Jeff Fisher Thursday.

Reid has been at the helm of the Eagles since 1999. In that span he has taken the team to one Super Bowl.

There’s always next year.

What do you think the chances are that Fisher could wind up as Reid’s defensive coordinator. Fisher was on the Birds staff but left when then-owner Norman Braman went with Rich Kotite as head coach after cutting loose Buddy Ryan.

Fisher’s agent yesterday downplayed any chance that Fisher could be on the way back to Philadelphia.

Reid might not be all that thrilled about having a guy with Fisher’s resume looking over his shoulder.

In the meantime, no word on a possible choice for the Eagles new boss on the defensive side of the ball.

The league’s longest-tenured coach is apparently in the process of the longest coaching decision as well.
