According to a report from the Philadelphia Eagles’ official website, Head Coach Andy Reid’s tenure has officially come to an end.

The football world has been waiting for this news to break since the end of the Eagles’ season yesterday with a loss to the New York Giants, and the Philadelphia sports world has been waiting for it for years now.

There have been no official reports as to targets to replace Andy Reid. Furthermore, there has been no implication that Reid will move to the front office.

Some think this move is weeks overdue. Regardless, owner Jeffrey Lurie made good on his assertion last season that 8-8 was not a good enough record. Moreover, worse than 8-8 certainly was not good enough.

The Eagles’ future is unclear, but the fact of the matter is that a new regime will be ushered in for better or worse, and a change is what is needed most right now for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Though the team has released an official statement confirming they will be moving on from Andy Reid, fans and the media are currently awaiting a press conference to address the matter and get more details about the future of the Eagles.

Other questions that remain are about whether or not quarterback Michael Vick will return, as well general manager Howie Roseman. Also, some of the team’s struggling starters like Nnamdi Asomugha don’t have clear futures either.

No matter what the case may be, Philadelphia Eagles fans will finally see the change they’ve called for for so long realized.
