Eagles contingent headed to Atlanta to interview Mike Nolan, Keith Armstrong

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Two of Atlanta's top assistants are on the list of targets for the new Philadelphia head coaching position.

Atlanta Falcons' defensive coordinator Mike Nolan and special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong will soon interview with a contingent from the Philadelphia Eagles about their recent head coaching vacancy. The Philadelphia group, led by owner Jeffery Lurie, will travel to Atlanta to meet with Nolan and Armstrong, according to NBC Sports. It's unclear when the interviews will take place, but Lurie's group was reported to be en route on Wednesday afternoon.

Nolan and Armstrong are among a group of candidates targeted by Lurie. That group is thought to include Denver Broncos' offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Oregon head coach Chip Kelly and Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien. Atlanta defensive coordinator Dirk Koetter was believed to be a target before removing his name from consideration.

Nolan and Armstrong are busy helping ready the Falcons for an NFC playoff run. Atlanta enjoys home-field advantage in the NFC and will host a divisional playoff game next weekend. The Eagles finished the season 4-12.
