Giants LBs coach Jim Herrmann withdraws from Eagles DC search, will return to NY

New York Giants linebackers coach Jim Herrmann reportedly interviewed with the Philadelphia Eagles for their vacant defensive coordinator job over the weekend, but apparently has had a change of heart.

Herrmann has pulled his name out of consideration, opting to stay back in New York, according to Tom Rock of Newsday.

Herrmann, with the Giants since 2009, has a wealth of college and NFL experience. He was an assistant coach at Michigan for 20 years, 9 of those as defensive coordinator. He also coached LBs with the New York Jets.

We're not sure of the reason for him withdrawing or whether the Eagles were actually considering him. Also reportedly in line for the Eagles DC job are Alabama's Kirby Smart and Georgia's Todd Grantham.
