Appearing on a SiriusXM Radio with Duke men's basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski, the coach of the reigning Super Bowl champions said he does not have a definitive plan to replace Frank Reich, who was named head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.
There has been speculation that Pederson may not fill the position. He called his own plays this past season, and plans to do so next season as well.
"I haven't ruled out not having an offensive coordinator," Pederson told Krzyzewski, per ProFootballTalk.com. "But you know, as a head coach and some of the responsibilities that I have to do during the week and some of the other obligations, I've got to look at that too. Because that's where your offensive coordinator can really step in so, like I said, I'm processing a bunch of things."
Pederson has said that both running backs coach Duce Staley and wide receivers coach Mike Groh would both make good offensive coordinators. Another option is that both of those coaches will get additional responsibilities in directing and planning the offense.
"I'm not going to rush into it, I'm going to make sure it's the right person, the right fit for what we're doing," said Pederson. "I think that's important too, that that person fits the culture and his way of thinking has to coincide with the way we're thinking and calling the plays and go from there."
