Doug Pederson’s status as @Eagles coach is not firm, sources tell @Tim_McManus and me.
Pederson could be out if owner Jeffrey Lurie is not confident about Pederson’s vision going forward after the two meet again soon.
Lurie’s concerns extend well beyond Carson Wentz, per sources.

As I said Monday morning, Pederson’s fall from grace is nothing short of spectacular. A few years ago, he won a Super Bowl.
Now, it’s January 2021, and he’s looking for a new job. Life comes at you fast!
The Eagles are such an absolute mess. It’s truly staggering. Carson Wentz seems to have been destroyed as a franchise quarterback, Pederson has been pushed out the door and there’s no reason to be optimistic if you’re a fan of the team.
