Colts defensive backs coach Jonathan Gannon is the favorite to become the Eagles defensive coordinator, according to multiple sources.

On Thursday, the Eagles hired Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni as their head coach.

If the Eagles do land Gannon it will be a huge signing. He has worked with Sirianni for the past three seasons and has produced four top-10 pass defenses in seven years.

The Eagles finished 19th in the NFL in passing yards allowed averaging 363.1 yards per game.
