Reports: Duce Staley To Coach Running Backs


Not much of Andy Reid’s regime remains in Philadelphia as all three of his former coordinators found new work this week. Yes, even Bobby April.

But not all of Reid’s coaches will be leaving Philadelphia.

According to multiple reports, the Eagles have retained the services of Duce Staley. Staley, who served on Reid’s staff the past two seasons, has been promoted from special teams quality control coach to running backs coach.

He is the fourth leading rusher in franchise history.

In order to make room for Staley, former running backs coach Ted Williams will be moved to tight ends coach. Williams, who was hired by Ray Rhodes in 1995, coached tight ends during his first two seasons in Philadelphia.

Williams, who will enter his 19th season, is the longest-tenured coach in franchise history.

Both Staley and Williams are headed to the Senior Bowl this week for scouting purposes.
