The Philadelphia Eagles formally announced changes to their coaching staff for the 2024 season on February 23. The spotlight will shine brightest on new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio and new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore as those two individuals look to patch up the inexperience of last year’s play-calling nightmare.

Kellen Moore

Moore is widely regarded as an innovator who can maximize top-tier talent, although the 35-year-old endured an up-and-down season in charge of the Chargers’ offense in 2023. He garnered a lot of street cred in Dallas where he unleashed Dak Prescott.

Eagles star receiver DeVonta Smith had some words of wisdom for Moore as he leads Philadelphia’s offense into a new era (via Up and Adams Show): “Just let us do what we do,” Smith said. “Like anybody else would say, just get us the ball.”

Fangio — the grizzled veteran the Eagles intended to hire last offseason prior to Jonathan Gannon’s unintentional sabotage — brings more than 40 years of experience to the table including an NFL Assistant Coach of the Year nod in 2018. The 65-year-old spent the 2023 campaign guiding the Dolphins to a No. 10 ranking in total defense.

“Vic’s reputation obviously speaks for itself,” Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said. “He’s a brilliant defensive mind who has coached at a very high level in this league for many years. I’m excited for our coaches and players to be able to learn from him and see it for themselves.”

Here is the full coaching staff (new and old, with titles):

Quarterback Coach: Position to Watch

The most interesting new hire is quarterbacks coach Doug Nussmeier. He takes over for Alex Tanney who heads to Indianapolis as the Colts’ pass game coordinator after only one season in charge of Jalen Hurts.

Nussmeier, who went 0-2 as a quarterback for New Orleans (1996-97) in five career games, has been Kellen Moore’s right-hand man in previous stops in Dallas and Los Angeles. The Nussmeirer-Moore connection has been lightning in a bottle, ranking No. 4 in total offense for Dallas in 2021 (6,9191 yards) and No. 10 in 2022 (6,034 yards). They ranked No. 7 as a tandem last season (6,108 yards) while calling the plays for the Chargers.

Meanwhile, the 53-year-old quarterbacks coach has a drool-worthy coaching resume dating back to the college ranks where he worked under Nick Saban at Alabama. A.J. McCarron was one of his prized pupils, catapulting himself into Heisman Trophy consideration after throwing for a school-record 26 touchdowns in 2013. 

In addition to Alabama, Nussmeier has enjoyed successful stints at other big-time programs like Michigan, Florida, Michigan State, Fresno State, and Washington. He’s also coached in the Canadian Football League, with his first NFL job coming in 2006 when he was hired to be quarterbacks coach under then-Rams coach Scott Linehan. (Fun fact: Nussmeier is one of only 32 left-handed quarterbacks to ever play in the NFL).

As far as whether his philosophy and personality will mesh well with Nick Sirianni’s emotionally driven outbursts … well, let’s wait and see. He seems to be big on the process, and taking it one day at a time, which at least matches Sirianni’s core principles.

“You don’t know where the foxholes may be or where the road may turn one way or the other,” Nussmeier told Chargers.com before the 2022 season. “That’s what makes it so fun, every day is going to be different in this league, every day is going to be a different challenge. To go through that and then when you have the success that’s what I think makes the chase of that success so great.”
