Eagles Move on From Another Assistant Coach

Phillip Daniels, the defensive line coach, is out.

Seems like a strange one, doesn’t it? The Birds lost Malik Jackson and Hassan Ridgeway for the season, and Tim Jernigan and Derek Barnett missed games. But the d-line still played relatively well, especially down the stretch. Not good enough for the Eagles front office, I guess.

Confirmed by him on Twitter:

Daniels had been in Philly since 2016, starting as the defensive quality control and assistant d-line guy. He took over as the defensive line coach this season following Chris Wilson’s departure, so similar to Carson Walch, he only got one season in his new role.

Seems like an odd move to me, but listen, if the Eagles are seriously cleaning house and bringing in some new voices and new influences, then it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world, would it? Right now they have openings at WR coach, DB coach, d-line coach, and offensive coordinator.

  1. I don’t know if he has any experience writing, but hey can’t be worse than some of the stuff I see here. So now that Mr Daniels is available, how about finally getting a single non-white guy on your staff. Too bad Kyle doesn’t have a Rooney Rule.
