Eagles defensive coordinator search winding down

Ed Donatell?

Ted Monachino?

Todd Grantham?

One way or another, new head coach Chip Kelly and the Eagles should have a defensive coordinator in place in the near future.

Donatell is the secondary coach of the San Francisco 49ers, who were shredded by Joe Flacco on his way to leading the Baltimore Ravens to a 34-31 victory in Super Bowl XLVII.

Monachino is the linebackers coach of the Ravens.

Grantham is defensive coordinator at the University of Georgia.

All are versed in the 3-4 defense the Eagles apparently will adopt after a lifetime of the 4-3.

The rub is that Saints head coach Sean Payton  also is looking for a 3-4 defensive coordinator.
There's speculation Grantham is lying low until the Feb. 6th national signing day. That would minimize recruiting damage for Georgia.
