Jim Mora and Andy Reid have spoken about the Eagles' opening for a defensive coordinator, a league source confirmed to the Daily News today.

Mora, the former Seahawks and Falcons coach, would be interested in the position, if offered, the source said. A formal interview has not yet taken place between the two.

Mora was a member of Steve Mariucci's staff with San Francisco, when current Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg was on the staff. Mora was the Niners' defensive coordinator for 5 seasons, from 1999 to 2003. Reid and Mariucci are close friends, dating back to their time together on Mike Holmgren's staff in Green Bay.

Mora served as an analyst for the NFL Network this season after being fired as the Seattle head coach following a 5-11 record in 2009. He spent 2007 and '08 as the assistant head coach/secondary in Seattle following his 3 years as the Falcons head coach.
