Joe Woods isn't going anywhere.
One day after it was revealed the Minnesota Vikings' secondary coach interviewed for the defensive coordinator job in Philadelphia, the Eagles announced offensive line coach Juan Castillo will get the job instead.
Woods, 40, always appeared a long shot for the position, since he's never been a coordinator in 19 seasons as a college and NFL assistant.
Then again, neither has Castillo, who spent the past 21 seasons as an offensive assistant at the college and NFL levels. His only defensive coordinating experience came at Kingsville (Texas) High School in the late 1980s.
Vikings coach Leslie Frazier cleaned house on offense and special teams after his Jan. 3 promotion but retained his three top defensive assistants -- Woods, line coach Karl Dunbar and linebackers coach Fred Pagac, who was promoted to Frazier's old post as defensive coordinator.
