Default Info on Sean McDermott...our next DC?

Is this our next DC? ESPN says this is who McDaniels wants...thoughts?

http://www.philadelphiaeagles.com/te...sp?coach_id=10

Sean McDermott
Secondary Coach




One of the brightest, young defensive minds in the league, Sean McDermott enters his 10th season in Philadelphia. McDermott was named secondary coach on January 28, 2008, after a successful one-year stint as linebackers coach last season.

"I don't think there are a lot of secondary coaches that are as good as Sean McDermott," Eagles head coach Andy Reid said. "He was a phenomenal linebackers coach and, really, his versatility I just think is second to none."

The linebacking group flourished under McDermott in 2007 as two youngsters Omar Gaither (team-leading 170 tackles and 14 hurries) and Chris Gocong (92 tackles, including 7 for a loss) progressed into full-time starters for the first time in their careers.

From 2004-06, McDermott served as the Eagles secondary/safeties coach. In 2004, he saw both of his starting safeties (Brian Dawkins and Michael Lewis) earn Pro Bowl berths for the first time in team history. Under McDermott's watch, Dawkins went on to earn two more Pro Bowl berths following the 2005 and 2006 seasons. In addition, McDermott has been credited with the development of Eagles S Quintin Mikell.

McDermott worked as the Eagles assistant secondary coach in 2003 and as the club's defensive assistant/quality control coach from 2001-02, working with the linebacker position. In all, McDermott is the longest tenured defensive assistant coach under Jim Johnson.

Under McDermott's watch, one of his players (Dawkins twice, Lewis and Gaither) has been the most productive player on defense in four out of the last five years.

McDermott originally joined the Eagles in 1998 as a scouting administrative coordinator, a position he held until being promoted to assistant to the head coach in 1999.

From 1993-97, McDermott was a safety at the College of William and Mary, earning all-conference honors in 1997, Academic all-conference honors in 1996 and 1997, and NSCA Strength and Conditioning All-America accolades. In 1998, he was the recipient of the prestigious Benjamin Ewell Award for his tremendous leadership and excellence on campus and in the community. In the spring of 1998, McDermott began his coaching career at William and Mary.

A 1993 graduate of LaSalle HS, McDermott was named All-Southeastern Pennsylvania at defensive back in 1992. An all-around athlete, he was also a national prep school wrestling champion in his junior and senior year and lettered twice in track.

In 2005, McDermott was named to the Philadelphia Daily News All-Catholic league team for standout players over the last three decades.

A native of Omaha, Nebraska, McDermott (born 3/21/74) earned a bachelor degree in finance while at William and Mary. He enjoys exercising, playing golf and is an active member of the Church. He and his wife, Jamie, and their newborn daughter, Madeline, reside in Phoenixville, PA.

It's a very exciting resume. The youth movement would be in full swing.

I'm all for it. I called for this guy over a week ago in a thread. This way we get a guy behind the Pats' offense and the Jim Johnson/Eagles defense. Young coaching staff. I love it.

I like it if this is true. Comes from a great defense and boss is a stud.

He has learned how to teach a lot of different positions it looks like, so that will be good.

Lets go with the ALL UNDER 35 Mantra for our coaches! might as well now

Yeah but the youth movement should be on the field, not in the coaching dept.

lol generally true.

As far as I can tell, however, McDaniels has the best, youngest and freshest offensive mind in the league. Let's try our best to get the same thing on the other side.

If he's the new DC I hope he knows the DL as well as he appears to know LBs and DBs.

I'm guessing this guy has learned plenty in 10 years under Jim Johnson. Having a guy like this, and from my favorite D system, would go far in making me feel better about the McDaniels hiring.

McDermott is tied to the Eagles unless they let him leave.

He can leave for a promotion, no matter what they might want.

He could leave for a promotion to DC, but it looks like Capers will get the job.

I would prefer McDermott but Capers has had a lot of success on the defensive side of the ball!

A source also said the team will hire Dom Capers, who was the head coach of expansion teams Carolina and then Houston. He was an assistant/secondary coach with the Patriots this season after serving eight years as an NFL head coach.

Mort reported it is in his contract, he can only leave for a HC job.

i like that. Jim Johnson disciples tend to make very good DC's. if he employs the same type of defense and brings in a great DL coach this defense might do some serious good.

You can only leave if the promotion is to HC, not to DC. The eagles could let him leave, but it would be up to them.

I thought that at first, too. But thinking about it, Capers has been a very good DC. Plus, we need some experience at the top to help out a young HC. Capers brings that, McDermott doesn't.

I'd rather have Capers, a guy that has had plenty of experience as a DC. With McDaniels as HC, I want someone that can come in and run with the defensive side of the ball.
