Steelers legend Hines Ward showing interest in Eagles WR Coach Role

The Philadelphia Eagles have been searching around for a new offensive coordinator after scoring a mere nine points in their wild card game against the Seattle Seahawks on January 4. Notably, former NFL star wide receiver and 14-year Pittsburgh Steelers veteran Hines Ward is interested in helping out on that side of the ball.

Ward, 47, spent last year as an offensive assistant with the Jets, his first year as an NFL coach. He makes an interesting candidate for Philly with his mastery at the wide receiver position, an annoying position for the Eagles in 2019.

Ward’s locker room presence and talent cannot be understated as a past NFL player who has had such a smooth transition into coaching, it would be a very useful addition to the Eagles coaching team.

Despite the Eagles being the front runners, a separate report indicates that there is a mutual interest in the Steelers legend.

Keep an eye on this one, Philly fans – would you want Hines in? Is offence your main concern for the off-season?
