Andy Reid will likely coach his last game with the Eagles on Sunday.

But then what? Will Big Red take some time off? Will he move to a front office position - in Philadelphia or elsewhere? Or will he jump right back into coaching?

According to Don Banks of Sports Illustrated, Jaguars owner Shahid Khan will likely fire first-year coach Mike Mularkey after the season, and may want to make a big splash with his new coach.

Who makes a bigger splash than Andy Reid?

  • "Mularkey was seen as a safe coaching choice last year, but owner Shahid Khan is thought to be looking to make a bolder, splashier move for a franchise in need of new energy and new direction," writes Banks.

    "On the coaching front, soon-to-be ex-Eagles coach Andy Reid and Alabama's Nick Saban are two big names being floated, but both would come at a hefty cost, if they were even interested in the Jaguars."

    Banks also wrote that Eagles fans may want to think twice before betting on Chip Kelly being the next Eagles coach.
