After every head coaching position had been filled, it is a lock that long-time offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg will be returning to the Philadelphia Eagles for the 2012 season.
Mornhinweg was a name being tossed around for nearly every head coaching vacancy, and he actually did interview with the Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders. However, both organizations went in another direction and hired another coach, leaving Mornhinweg to stay with the Eagles. There is almost no chance that Mornhinweg would consider leaving, or would be fired, as he and head coach Andy Reid built around each other and are key to each other’s success.
This is excellent news for Philadelphia, as now Mornhinweg will have a full off-season to work with quarterback Michael Vick. This year, due to the NFL Lockout, training camps and OTA’s never happened, and Mornhinweg didn’t have any chance to work individually with Vick. Even though the 2010 season was a huge success for Vick and Mornhinweg without any prior practice, this season proved that it was not going to happen without the two working together more.
