Eagles’ Doug Pederson “Fully Confident” He Will Return in 2021

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson doesn’t feel like he is on the hot seat, and is instead “fully confident” that he will be back as the Eagles head coach for the 2021 season, regardless of the lackluster season.

“I feel fully confident to be the head coach of the Eagles in 2021,” Pederson said, during an appearance on WIP via “The thing I’m most proud of this football team, we have been in the postseason three of the last five years since I’ve been here and that’s pretty good.”

“We have won a championship here. We have gone through a season where a lot of our veteran guys are not playing due to injury. We are playing with a lot of young players. There is always going to be evaluation in the offseason and my job is evaluated as well. I fully expected to be the coach next season and I welcome the opportunity to get things right, get things fixed and take this team into next season.”

The Eagles currently sit at 4-10-1 on the season, but the play of quarterback Jalen Hurts has provided hope for the future. Philly will also have to navigate parting ways with quarterback Carson Wentz, and his contract, so perhaps adding a search for new head coach this offseason might prove to be too much work.

However, Pederson’s confidence has nothing to do with dictating the decision made by the organization, who might decide to move on from Pederson and Wentz this upcoming offseason.
