The Philadelphia Eagles have officially cut ties with head coach Andy Reid. The Eagles fired Reid after 14-seasons with the team, which ended a 4 – 12 2012 campaign by suffering a 42 – 7 loss to New York Giants on Sunday afternoon. Reid is the winningest coach in Eagles history with 140-career victories, and he ranks 22nd on the NFL’s all-time list.
In 1999, Reid’s first year with the organization, the team went 5 -11, but only had two other seasons below the .500 mark.
Off-the-field drama also affected Reid earlier this year when his 29-year-old son Garrett passed away at the team’s training camp facility on the campus of Lehigh University.
