The hits just keep on coming for the Philadelphia Eagles.
After losing the Super Bowl on Sunday, the Eagles suffered two more losses after the game.
That is both their offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator finding head coaching jobs.
Shane Steichen will take over the Indianapolis Colts, while Jonathan Gannon will take the Arizona Cardinals’ job.
Cardinals are finalizing a deal with former Eagles’ defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon to become their new head coach, sources tell ESPN. The last HC opening of this hiring cycle is being filled.

Both men were seen as assistants in the league and had different interviews for head coaching opportunities.
After hearing of these moves, the Eagles now find themselves in a bind.
They will have to find new coordinators, and most of the top options are already taken.
Most Eagles fans are sad to hear about the loss of Steichen.
He was their offensive play caller and deserves plenty of credit in the development of Jalen Hurts.
The Eagles had the top rushing attack in the NFL, and Steichen was able to find weaknesses in opposing teams.
It will be interesting to see how his loss affects their offense as a whole next season.
But, on the defensive side, Gannon has become the scapegoat for the Super Bowl loss.
After not being able to stop the Chiefs after halftime, many Eagles fans are happy to see Gannon go.
He did lead the Eagles to a top-five defense, and the NFL lead in sacks this past season.
But, the only thing Philly fans will remember is the Super Bowl loss.
Ultimately, it is hard to replace both coordinators and have the same amount of success as a team.
But, no one will feel sorry for the Eagles as they will have a bullseye on their back next season.NEXT: Jalen Hurts' Own Teammates Are Removing All Doubt
