The Philadelphia Eagles are set to interview former All-Pro linebacker Jerod Mayo for the teams’ vacant head coaching position on Friday per Jeff McLane.

One of the top young coaches in the game, Mayo spent eight years with the Patriots as a player and the past two seasons as an inside linebackers coach with the team.

With Mayo on the staff, the Patriots defense has allowed the fewest points per game in the NFL over the past two seasons (18.1), while opposing quarterbacks had just a 75.5 passer rating against the Patriots defense over the past two seasons, the lowest in the league.

The Eagles have already interviewed Joe Brady, Robert Saleh and will interview Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith on Thursday.
