The Philadelphia Eagles have fired defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, according to a team source.
The Eagles do not have a replacement in mind right now and will sort through several potential candidates, according to the source.
McDermott's 21st-ranked unit had particular problems in the red zone. He was promoted to coordinator before the start of the 2009 season when legendary coordinator Jim Johnson was no longer healthy enough to coach.
