Steve Spagnuolo, Philadelphia Eagles To Reunite Within Week, According To Report

If any New York Giants fans still hold out hope that Steve Spagnuolo will return to the team's coaching staff at some point, it's probably time to let go of the dream. The former Giants defensive coordinator is expected to rejoin the Philadelphia Eagles staff in some capacity within the next week, reports the NFL Network's Jason La Canora.

La Canfara reports that Spagnuolo will likely become Philadelphia's assistant head coach or defensive coordinator. The latter scenario could only result if the team tells current defensive coordinator Juan Castillo he will not be retained in the same position next season. It's possible, according to La Canfora, that Castillo could be kept on the staff but delegated to another role.

Spagnuolo solidified his reputation as a defensive mind during his stint as the Giants defensive coordinator. He is known as the architect who designed the high-octane defense which kept the New England Patriots from achieving an undefeated season, holding the Patriots to just two touchdowns in a 17-14 win.
