Jan. 21 (UPI) -- The Philadelphia Eagles are hiring Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni as their next head coach.

League sources told ESPN and NFL Media on Thursday that Sirianni had an interview for the Eagles' head-coaching job that started Tuesday and carried over to the next day. According to the outlets, the team narrowed its search to two candidates -- New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and Sirianni.

The Eagles ultimately settled on Sirianni, who has been the Colts' offensive coordinator for three seasons.

Sirianni will replace former Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, who was fired earlier this month after five seasons in Philadelphia. The team parted ways with him following a 4-11-1 campaign.

Pederson posted a 46-39-1 record and won the Super Bowl during the 2017-18 season. In the two seasons after that championship victory, the Eagles had back-to-back 9-7 records and failed to advance past the divisional round.

Sirianni also has worked as a quarterbacks coach and receivers coach since entering the league with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009.
