Training Camp is upon us and the Philadelphia Eagles have wasted no time in buttoning their shirts and preparing for the summer ahead. The team announced six positional changes to their front office today, including one new hire.

Dennard Wilson

The defensive backs coach has been given a promotion to become the defensive passing game coordinator. Realistically, this should position him as Gannon’s understudy and in the event that the Eagles DC departs or is exiled depending on his 2022 season, they at least have an in-house candidate who is familiar with the same principles.

Jeremiah Washburn

Jeremiah Washburn has gone from a defensive assistant to the DE/OLB coach. It’s interesting that these positions have been grouped together when you consider the versatility of Hasson Reddick. This is probably by design and shows an intent to encourage that hybrid style of play beyond the talents of the new franchise pass-rusher.

Tyler Scudder

He’s gone from a coaches assistant to a defensive assistant. I don’t know what that means either.

Alex Tanney

The former QB gets a promotion to become the assistant QB coach to Brian Johnson. It’s very easy to see Tanney climbing the ranks to a more senior coaching position in the coming years, especially if Hurts does develop as expected.

Eric Dickerson

Eric Dickerson is going from the defensive side of the ball to the offensive side as a quality control coach.

Scott Kaniecki

In an ironic turn of events, the Eagles have actually poached one of the Cleveland front office members as opposed to losing one of theirs to the Browns! Kaniecki joins as an administrative assistant to the Head Coach…so, Dwight Schrute.
