Castillo still on Eagles staff

Embattled defensive coordinator Juan Castillo remains a part of the Eagles' staff, per a source.

That's the only hard news the Eagles have right now about their coaching staff.

Considering how secondary coach Johnnie Lynn was let go before head coach Andy Reid went on vacation, it's an indicatation Castillo will be a part of the staff when the Big Guy returns to work.

The NFL Network reported that Steve Spagnuolo, fired recently after a 10-38 tour as head coach of the Rams, "is expected to be back in Philadelphia by the end of the week."

Spagnuolo would be back, if you will, to speak with Reid about a coaching job. Spagnuolo was an assistant with the Eagles until the 2007 season, when he exited to be defensive coordinator of the Giants. The Giants won the Super Bowl in his first year on the job, defeating the unbeaten Patriots.

The Eagles couldn't confirm if Spagnuolo would get together with Reid later this week, much less speculate on what role he might fill.

That said, reports of Spagnuolo's iminent hiring are premature.
