Philadelphia Eagles Hire Jim Washburn

Eagles announce hiring of Titans DL coach Jim Washburn. Huge hire for them. May be the best in the biz. Worked wonders in Tenn...less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®

It is now official according to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network and Jim Wyatt.  Jim Washburn has agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Eagles to be their defensive line coach.  I don't think we can stress enough what a huge loss this is for the Titans.  The Titans had one good thing going for them on defense and now he is gone.  As others have mentioned, this also probably lessens the possibility that Albert Haynesworth would come back to the Titans if he does get released by the Redskins this offseason. 

We will start to compile a list of possible replacements, but there is no way they are going to get anyone even close to as good as Wash.  La Canfora says in a later tweet that he now thinks even more strongly 2011 could be the end for Jeff Fisher with the Titans.  We can only hope that is true.  I have to believe that if Bud Adams would have cared enough about winning to fire Jeff Fisher after the 2010 disaster that the new coach would have done everything in his power to retain Wash.  Too bad Bud is content to watch a perennial .500 team year in and year out..
