Eagles DC Jonathan Gannon is expected to be a hot name for head coaching vacancies this offseason.
One team has already requested an interview with Gannon ahead of Wild Card weekend, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero:

Gannon, 39, has spent 15 years as an NFL assistant coach and scout. A rising coach who has turned around the playoff-bound Philly D.
Gannon, who came over from Indianapolis with Sirianni, had a rocky start in Philadelphia as he struggled to find the right fit for his personnel.
He adjusted well down the stretch, allowing just 16.5 points per game since Week 8 — excluding the season finale against Dallas.
Current Broncos GM George Paton worked with Gannon during their time together in Minnesota. Denver is one of six teams currently searching for a new head coach: Raiders, Broncos, Jaguars, Dolphins, Bears, Vikings.
