The Philadelphia Eagles have fired defensive coordinator Sean McDermott.

A team spokesman confirmed the firing Saturday. No replacement has been announced.

The Eagles allowed 377 points this season, the most since 1974.

McDermott replaced Jim Johnson after the assistant died of cancer in 2009.

The Eagles won the NFC East with a 10-6 record before losing to the Green Bay Packers 21-16 in a first-round playoff game last week.
