In his second season as the Eagles' head coach, Pederson won Super Bowl LII (also against the Patriots), marking the first Super Bowl title in Eagles franchise history.
Pederson wraps up his time in Philadelphia with a 42-37-1 record and a 4-2 postseason mark.
"We are all very disappointed with the way our season went and eager to turn things around, not just for next season but also for the future of the franchise", Lurie said in a statement.
Pederson's relationship with Lurie dates back to 1999 when the Eagles signed Pederson to be their starting quarterback ahead of then-rookie Donovan McNabb. He had a 4-2 playoff mark, including Philadelphia's run to Super Bowl LII, in which the Eagles defeated the New England Patriots 41-33 on February 4, 2018.
Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane reports that "Pederson's future with the Eagles remains uncertain after an initial meeting with owner Jeffrey Lurie failed to settle unresolved issues about the future direction of the team". There were also heads scratched over Pederson's decision to insert Nate Sudfeld (benching Jalen Hurts, while Carson Wentz was inactive) in the Week 17 loss to Washington.
Despite the Eagles' record, Pederson's offseason plans apparently had as much to do with his firing as Philadelphia's on-field performance. The Eagles hired him in January 2016 after abruptly firing Chip Kelly a month earlier.

Over the past month, Pederson gave every indication he meant to return as the team's coach in 2021, and he reiterated that he was part of the solution for the team.
Doug Pederson's time in Philadelphia has come to an end.
In his first start, Hurts became the first quarterback in National Football League history to run for at least 100 yards and throw a touchdown pass in his first start in a 24-21 upset of the New Orleans Saints on December 13.
Pederson should be an attractive candidate on the open market.
"I still have total faith, total trust in Carson Wentz and myself together to get the job done".
