  • The Eagles have reportedly hired former Jets DBs coach Dennard Wilson for the same position in Philadelphia. Wilson, 38, has been coaching in the NFL since 2012.

Jan. 29 

  • The Eagles have hired former Chip Kelly assistant Michael Clay as their new special teams coordinator, the team confirmed on Friday. Clay was with the Eagles in 2014-15 before joining Chipper in San Francisco.

  • Press Taylor has reportedly already found a new gig. He'll be joining Frank Reich and Mike Groh in Indy.

  • Former Eagles DBs coach Cory Undlin has landed in SF, according to a report. He was mentioned as a possible DC candidate in Philly if Doug Pederson kept the job. Undlin spent 2020 as the DC in Detroit.

Jan. 26

  • Eagles special teams coordinator Dave Fipp is reportedly joining the staff in Detroit. Fipp had been with the Eagles since the 2013 season and stayed with the team during the switch from Chip Kelly to Doug Pederson. Some of Fipp's early units were great but that level dropped in recent seasons.

Jan. 25 

  • Press Taylor is gone. Not much of a surprise but Taylor reportedly won't be retained by the Eagles for 2021. They will need to find a new QBs coach.

  • Longtime Eagle Duce Staley is leaving. After the Eagles didn't hire him as their next head coach, Staley asked out of his contract and will reportedly be joining the Lions as their running backs coach/assistant head coach.

  • The Eagles are reportedly hiring Shane Steichen as their new OC. Steichen coached with Sirianni from 2014-17 with the Chargers. After Sirianni left the Chargers, Steichen continued to rise and became the full-time OC in 2020. 

Jan. 24

  • Duce Staley has asked out of his contract after getting passed up for the head coaching job. After a decade with the Eagles as an assistant coach, Staley is ready to move on.

  • We know of two candidates for the Eagles’ vacant offensive coordinator job: Chargers OC Shane Steichen and Broncos RBs coach Curtis Modkins.

  • Colts DBs coach Jonathan Gannon is the Eagles' new DC. He worked with Sirianni for the past three seasons. Gannon reportedly had interest elsewhere but the Eagles were able to snag him.

  • The Eagles are really letting Sirianni put this staff together. The latest example is Kevin Patullo, who comes from Indy. 

Jan. 23

  • While the Eagles are hiring Gannon as their DC, they did interview another person: Washington DBs coach Chris Harris.

  • Longtime Eagles tight ends coach Justin Peelle is moving on. Peelle, who coached under Chip Kelly and Doug Pederson, is the new tight ends coach in Atlanta.
