It's official. Sean McDermott will be introduced as the Eagles defensive coordinator tomorrow at 1 p.m. news conference. The Eagles released a statement this morning, although The Inquirer broke the story yesterday.

McDermott had been named the interim DC in May after Jim Johnson resumed cancer treatments. The 35-year-old McDermott was the secondary coach and before that the linebackers coach. He has been with the organization for over a decade and worked under Johnson's tutelage for years.

McDermott played college football at William & Mary and is a product of La Salle High School in surburban Philadelphia.

There was no update on Johnson's status, although there should be one at tomorrow's press conference.
