Duce Staley might be the most disrespected coach in the NFL. The Philadelphia Eagles assistant head coach and running backs coach hasn't received any interest to step into the head coaching ranks in the NFL, and the Eagles will operate in 2020 without an offensive coordinator rather than promote Staley to the vacant position.

Even his college alma mater doesn't have a place for him. Staley, a former South Carolina running back, inquired about a job on Will Muschamp's offensive staff, but he was turned down.

Staley played 10 years in the NFL, seven with the Eagles and three with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and has quickly become one of the finer position coaches in the league, having helped running backs Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement lead the Eagles to a championship.

Players keep improving under Staley, you won't find anyone who says a bad word about him, and he has been trusted with an assistant head coach job on a playoff team. He would also kill it in recruiting given his NFL pedigree. What more does he need to do?

Staley is a high-ranking member of one of the most consistent teams in the league over the last half-decade and he has been constantly turned down for a promotion or lateral move at almost every turn. Keep your head up, Duce. That dream job is coming soon.
