Here are four fun facts about the new Philadelphia Eagles assistant head coach.

If you’re thinking ‘hey, he has the same title that Duce Staley had’, pat yourselves on the back. You’re correctamundo! Now, while Duce taught us that the ‘assistant head coach’ thing means nothing in Philly (it seems that the assistant head coach should have been the head coach in waiting right?), maybe the position will work out better for Singleton.

Talking about mock drafts and potential trade proposals kind of pushed the coaching staff into the background, but let’s give a new face some shine. Here are three fun facts about the man that will lead the running back room.

1. The special teams, offensive, and defensive coordinators all have more NFL experience.

While no rule states the assistant head coach of any football team has to be the most experienced, it’s still interesting that the OC, Shane Steichen (11 years), the DC, Jonathan Gannon (14 years), and special teams coordinator, Michael Clay (seven years) all have more NFL experience than Singleton (six years).

Sure, that’s probably not that interesting, but it sure caught our staff’s attention.
