Sources: Head coach Andy Reid notified he will not return for 2013
According to reports, Andy Reid has been notified that he will not be the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013.
Update 6:35 p.m.: The Inquirer's Jeff McLane has heard from sources close to the situation that Andy Reid was, in fact, informed he would not return as head coach on Friday. One source said that Reid would no longer be the head coach as of Monday.
From earlier: According to reports, Andy Reid has been notified that he will not be the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013. CSNPhilly's Reuben Frank was first with the news on Twitter.
Owner Jeffrey Lurie announced in August that a second consecutive 8-8 season would be unacceptable. After the Eagles' 30-22 Monday night loss to the Panthers gave Reid his 8th loss of the season, Reid's firing has been widely expected.
Reid's regular season record as the Eagles head coach is 130-92-1. In the playoffs, Reid posted a 10-9 record.
More from CSNPhilly's Frank:
"Lurie, according to two sources, has told Reid, who has one year remaining on his contract, would not return in 2013, ending months of speculation about his future.
Reid's tenure with the Eagles ended almost 14 years to the day after Lurie hired an unknown quarterbacks coach from the Packers to replace Ray Rhodes after a 3-13 season in 1998.
With 14 years of service, Reid was the reigning dean of NFL coaches and fourth in service among head coaches in all four major leagues, behind Gregg Popovich of the Spurs (17 years), Lindy Ruff of the Sabres (15 seasons) and Barry Trotz of the Predators (14 seasons)."
ESPN's Adam Schefter denies Reid has been notified:
"Andy Reid and Jeffrey Lurie scheduled to meet Monday. A team official insisted Lurie has not informed Reid he will be fired yet, though that news is expected Monday."
