With the first of ten scheduled training camp practices to begin at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, July 27th, the Philadelphia Eagles have announced several changes to their coaching staff. Year two of the Nick Sirianni era is set to begin, and for the young guys on the roster, that’s a good thing. Stability is always welcome, especially if you’re wearing the title of QB1.

Entering his second full season as the starter, Jalen Hurts has the comfort of knowing he’ll be listening to the same voices. This is the first time he’s had the same head coach, quarterbacks coach, and offensive coordinator in consecutive seasons since he was playing at the prep level. Philly’s shuffled the deck some, however, and on day one of their return to the NovaCare Complex, it didn’t take long for them to make an announcement.

The Philadelphia Eagles announce five internal promotions and a new hire.

According to the Eagles’ official team website, there have been six changes to the coaching staff, five promotions and one new hire. Here’s what we know.

Dennard Wilson

After spending the 2021-2022 season as the defensive backs coach, Dennard Wilson adds the role of defensive passing game coordinator to his title. His players will most certainly love that as everyone in the DBs room can’t stop raving about how great he’s been.

Jeremiah Washburn

A 20-year veteran in NFL circles as both a coach and scout, Jeremiah Washburn moves over from being a director of player personnel/senior defensive assistant to taking over as the defensive ends/outside linebackers coach. This is his third year with the franchise.

Eric Dickerson

Now, that’s a football name. How can you not trust a man named Eric Dickerson? He joined the team in 2021 as a defensive assistant, and he’s now moving over to the other side of the ball to take over as the offensive quality control coach.

Alex Tanney

Here’s a former NFL signal-caller. Alex Tanney joined the Philadelphia Eagles in 2021 as a quality control coach. He’s now the assistant quarterbacks coach and an offensive assistant where he’ll be working under current QB coach Brian Johnson.

Tyler Scudder

Meet Philly’s new defensive assistant. Tyler Scudder is also entering his second season with the Eagles after joining the Birds in 2021.

Scott Kaniecki

Scott Kaniecki is the only new addition that will be joining the team’s coaching staff in 2022. He arrives in the City of Brotherly Love after spending seven seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He’s been working with them in some capacity since 2015, making this his eighth season in the NFL.
