Saints assistant Dennis Allen will interview with the Eagles for their defensive coordindator opening this weekend, a league source confirmed.
Allen is also scheduled to meet with Denver for their opening, per Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com. Glazer reported that Allen would travel to Denver first and then head to Philadelphia. Eagles coach Andy Reid will be in attendance for the sit down.
The 38-year-old defensive backs coach has suddenly become a hot commodity. Allen has no prior experience as a coordinator, but the Saints secondary has had mild success during his three years of leadership.
Right now, Allen and Eagles senior assistant Dick Jauron are the only identified candidates for the Eagles' opening. Former Falcons and Seahawks head coach Jim Mora took his name out of the running for both the Eagles' and Broncos' openings. He was not considered a serious candidate for the Eagles job, team sources said.
