New Eagles defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will work with an entirely new group of assistant coaches.

Under new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, the changes won’t be as extensive on the offensive side of the ball.

We already know that legendary offensive line coach Jeff Stotland will be staying, and Siriani’s comments in a January press conference suggest that associate head coach and playmaking coordinator Kevin Patullo will be staying. But the Eagles announced Friday that wide receivers coach Aaron Moorhead, running backs coach and assistant head coach Jamal Singleton and tight ends coach Jason Michaels will remain with the team through 2024.

Gone from the group are offensive coordinator Brian Johnson, quarterbacks coach Alex Tanney, assistant offensive line coach Roy Istvan and senior offensive assistant Marcus Brady. Johnson is now the head quarterback, Taney the Colts quarterback, Stephen Browns assistant offensive line coach and Brady the Chargers quarterback.

The decision to keep Moorehead, Singleton and Michaels is a clear message to Howie Roseman and Nick Siriani that they believe the issues on offense in the second half of the season are a direct result of Johnson’s play calling and Siriani’s offensive structure.

Moore replaces Johnson as offensive coordinator and playmaker, and he runs his own system, not Siriani’s.

This will be Stowland’s 12.Th years with the Eagles, three under Chip Kelly and five under Doug Pederson. Jason Kelce, Lane Johnson, Jason Peters, Evan Mathis, Brandon Brooks and Landon Dickerson made a combined 23 Pro Bowls under Stowland. In the 50 years before Stowland got here, Eagles offensive linemen had made 21 total Pro Bowls.

Singleton, hired in 2021, has coached a variety of Pro Bowl running backs over the past two years — Miles Sanders in 2022 and D’Andre Swift last year.

Moorehead, a catch from Pederson’s staff, coached AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith to back-to-back seasons with at least 80 catches, 1,000 yards, seven touchdowns and 12.0 yards per catch. No other WR tandem in NFL history has put up those numbers in consecutive seasons.

And Michael, the original Siriani hire in 2021, got as much as anyone could have expected from Dallas Goedert and other tight ends.

Patullo, Siriani’s most trusted adviser, worked with Siriani in Indianapolis from 2018 to 2020 and doesn’t seem likely to leave.

The rest is entry-level quality control coach Eric Dickerson (no relation to the celebrity).

In addition to Moore, new additions to the offensive staff are new quarterbacks coach Doug Nussmeier and offensive assistant Kyle Valero, who we learned about earlier this month.

Moore and Valero were with both the Lions and Cowboys. Valero in 2010 He was the Lions’ assistant wide receivers coach in 2012 and 2013, when Moore was a quarterback, and was the assistant WRs coach in Dallas from 2015 to 2017, when Moore played for the Cowboys. 2022 by both Jason Garrett and Mike McCarthy, Moore as O.C. and Valero in various positions. Valero began his coaching career at Florida State as a student assistant under Bobby Bowden.

Also, TJ Paganetti will move from assistant tight ends coach and passing game specialist to assistant offensive line coach and running game specialist.

Paganetti, who coached under Chip Kelly at Oregon and joined Kelly’s staff with the Eagles in 2013, has held seven different positions with the Eagles: offensive and quarterback analyst in 2013, offensive quality control and offensive line assistant in 2017 and 2018, assistant running back in 2013. in 2019, assistant running game coordinator and assistant running backs in 2020, offensive quality control in 2021 and 2022 and play specialist and assistant tight ends last year. Paganetti returned to Oregon in 2015 and 2016.

Paganetti and Stoutland are the only coaches remaining from the 2017 Super Bowl championship season.
