Jim Herrmann - Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE
Jim Herrmann will reportedly not leave the New York Giants to become defensive coordinator of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Jim Herrmann, linebackers coach for the New York Giants, has reportedly withdrawn from consideration for the defensive coordinator position with the Philadelphia Eagles. Tom Rock of Newsday reported Monday morning that Herrmann interviewed with the Eagles over the weekend, but has informed them that he will stay with the Giants.
Herrmann has been the Giants linebackers coach since 2009. He held the same job with the New York Jets for three seasons prior to that.
Unless something unforeseen happens it appears that the Giants' coaching staff will remain almost entirely intact for the 2013 season. The only current opening is for an assistant offensive line coach. Matt Ruhle left that position to become head football coach at Temple University.
The Giants did, of course, lose senior pro personnel analyst Dave Gettleman. He recently became general manager of the Carolina Panthers.
