Mora wasn't interested in Eagles

Mora had this many conversations with Reid.
The Eagles’ search for a defensive coordinator to replace Sean McDermott really wasn’t much of a search at all.

Juan Castillo, the offensive line coach, was the only guy who really wanted the job.

Veteran Dick Jauron wasn’t interested, having worked under McDermott with the Eagles. Jauron is the defensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns.

Dennis Allen, the former New Orleans Saints assistant, chose the Denver Broncos over the Eagles after interviewing with both franchises.

OK, the Eagles probably could have hired Billy Davis, who interviewed for the post. But he’s Jauron’s linebackers coach.

Solid O-line coach.
Jim Mora Jr., who does the color commentary for Eagles-
Niners Sunday (1 p.m., Channel 29), wasn’t interested despite reports labeling him a candidate. Mora said he spoke with Andy Reid twice via telephone.
