Nick Sirianni will be working remotely for the next few days and the Eagles head coach has just announced he will be coaching his team from a hotel room after testing positive for COVID-19.
Fresh off a masterful coaching job against Washington, Sirianni woke up with symptoms Wednesday morning and declared himself.
Remote work is also helping to avoid symptoms for Sirianni’s wife and three children.
If Sirianni is unable to clear protocols before Sunday against the Giants, passing play coordinator Kevin Patullo will take over as head coach, with offensive coordinator Shane Steichen calling offensive plays and Jonathan Gannon directing his defense as usual.
