The Philadelphia Eagles continue to rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic, firing defensive line coach Jim Washburn following Sunday night’s 38-33 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Brasher previously coached the Eagles’ defensive line in 1985 and again from 1999-2005, when he retired from football. Washburn, who instituted the team’s “Wide 9″ defensive front, had remained on duty despite the team’s firing of defensive coordinator Juan Castillo earlier this month.

Reid will apparently address the move at a Monday afternoon press conference.
