Good morning, Eagles fans. Doug Pederson will hold a news conference today at noon. (He typically speaks the day after games, but it was moved to Tuesday this week ahead of the bye.)

Thank you for the nice words. The NFL has rules about when coaches can be interviewed to try to alleviate that problem. Assistants from teams that have byes, such as the Eagles, can interview during the bye week. It must take place in the city of the team the coach is currently with, so the coach doesn't have to travel for the interview. Assistants from teams playing during wild-card weekend can interview after the wild-card game. (Remember, the Eagles interviewed Doug Pederson the day after Kansas City's wild-card weekend win two years ago.) There cannot be interviews leading up to the conference championship games. For assistant coaches of Super Bowl teams, there is a window during the bye week before the Super Bowl for a second interview.
