Eagles Fire DC Juan Castillo
The Eagles have fired defensive coordinator Juan Castillo. Castillo has been on the hot seat almost from the day he took over for Sean McDermott, moving over from offensive line coach.
The Eagles have the 12th ranked defense this year after finishing 8th last year. While those certainly aren't numbers that would normally lead to a mid-season firing, with the exception of Jason Babin the Eagles' star studded defense has never really lived up to expectations under Castillo. Of course the same can be said of the entire Eagles' team the last year and a half and it's entirely possible that Castillo is the first domino to fall on the Eagles' coaching staff, but not the last.
