Eagles fire executive McDermott

The SportsXchange

The Philadelphia Eagles on Monday fired Tim McDermott, their senior vice president and chief marketing officer.

The team released a statement that read: "Tim McDermott is no longer with the Philadelphia Eagles organization. Tim's departure was amicable, and the Eagles thank him for his work, value his past contributions, and wish him well in his future endeavors."

McDermott was one of the top executives in the organization after owner Jeff Lurie and team president Don Smolenski in the team's executive structure.

"The Eagles and I have parted on amicable terms," McDermott said in a statement. "I have nothing but good things to say about the Eagles and the people I worked with, and wish the team the best as I pursue some exciting opportunities."

McDermott's younger brother, Sean McDermott, is the defensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers, whom the Eagles face Monday night.

McDermott was the Eagles' senior director of marketing from 2004-06, before leaving to become the Washington Capitals' senior vice president and chief marketing officer. He came back to the Eagles in 2010 as senior vice president and CMO.

The Eagles last Wednesday fired Rob Zeiger, who was the senior vice president of communications.
