“Andrew Berry has been hired as the vice president of football operations and joins the Eagles front office from the Cleveland Browns where he served as vice president of player personnel from 2016-18.

Prior to his time with the Browns, Berry worked for the Indianapolis Colts for seven years (2009-15). He was originally hired by Indianapolis as a scouting assistant and was promoted to pro scout in 2011. One year later, he was elevated to pro scouting coordinator and served in that role for his final four seasons with the club. During Berry’s tenure in Indianapolis, the Colts won four AFC South titles, made five postseason appearances and advanced to Super Bowl XLIV.

Berry graduated from Harvard University with a bachelor’s degree in economics and a master’s degree in computer science. He also played football for the Crimson, starting all four years at cornerback and earning All-Ivy League honors three times.”

Delimitros: been on the equipment staff for 16 years now

Dolan: 30 years in the NFL, 7 with the Eagles, and “is responsible for overseeing the video department and maximizing the football technologies used by the coaches, players and personnel departments on a day-to-day basis.”

Ferrari: came to the Eagles from the league office three years ago

Washburn: son of former defensive line coach, Jim Washburn
