The Philadelphia Eagles collapsed on a historic level in 2023-24. After starting 10-1 and appearing well on their way to another top seed in the NFC playoff tree, they lost five of their last six regular-season games to cling onto a wild card spot. Then they were bounced in dominant fashion by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fans are calling for big changes after the painful downfall, and you'd think the front office is looking deeply into what went wrong and what the options are.

While the defense was giving up points in bunches, the offense was struggling to keep up. The Eagles have already decided to clean out the defensive leadership, and they look to now be addressing the offensive side of the ball.

Eagles-Brian Johnson split appears to be coming

Derrick Gunn of JAKIB Sports tweeted on Monday that "all indications" point to the Eagles firing offensive coordinator Brian Johnson.

Johnson has been with the Eagles for four seasons, this past one being his first as OC. He has been rumored to be a candidate for a head coaching job with multiple teams in the league, including the Tennessee Titans, Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers.

Johnson was once thought to be the next young offensive mind to storm into the NFL with success, but this season was far from that. Even in the 10-1 start the Eagles had, points were certainly not found at a premium. They often had to fight and claw for many of those 10 victories.

At the very least, Johnson is still expected to land somewhere in an offensive role, maybe a coordinator or a quarterbacks coach.
