The Duce Staley era in Philadelphia is set to come to an end after the Eagles officially named Nick Sirianni the team’s 21st head coach.

John Clark is reporting that Staley will ask to be released from his contract to seek out better opportunities.

Staley is reportedly drawing interest from the Chicago Bears among others and moving on is likely his best shot at becoming a play-caller or head coach.

Staley played college football at South Carolina and was drafted by the Eagles in the third round of the 1997 NFL Draft.

Following the end of his playing career, Staley began his coaching career as a special teams quality control coach in 2011 for Philadelphia, before being promoted to the running backs coach in 2013 and given an additional role as assistant head coach in 2018.
