Eagles interview Duce Staley for head-coaching vacancy
Former running back Duce Staley, the Philadelphia Eagles' running backs coach, interviewed for their head-coaching vaancy. The interview was three days after Philadelphia fired coach Chip Kelly. Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said he hasn't ruled out offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, who will serve as the Eagles' interim coach Sunday or any members of Philadelphia's current staff as candidates. Staley played seven seasons for the Eagles. His interview means the Eagles have complied with the Rooney Rule requirement to interview at least one minority candidate. Staley, 40, rushed for 4,807 yards and had three 1,000-yard seasons with the Eagles from 1997 to 2003. Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
