Jimmy Kempski over at Philly Voice first on this jawn:

According to a source, the Philadelphia Eagles are hiring Aaron Moorehead to be their wide receivers coach. Moorehead was the wide receivers coach for Vanderbilt, and previously coached wide receivers at Texas A&M and Virginia Tech.

Like Doug Pederson — and many of Pederson’s other coaching hires over the years — Moorehead was a former player in the NFL. He was an undrafted free agent out of Illinois in 2003 and had 85 catches for 1,293 yards and nine touchdowns in five seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.

Also reported by John Clark, Dave Zangaro, and others.

Moorehead will be the Eagles’ fifth receivers coach in five years, following Carson Walch, Gunter Brewer, Mike Groh, and Greg Lewis. Bob Bicknell held the role during Chip Kelly’s tenure and David Culley was here for Andy Reid’s 14 seasons.

Here’s Moorehead’s previous coaching experience, courtesy of his profile at the Vanderbilt website:

  • 2018-present – Vanderbilt – Wide Receivers Coach
  • 2015-17 – Texas A&M – Wide Receivers Coach
  • 2013-14 – Virginia Tech – Wide Receivers Coach
  • 2010-12 – Stanford – Offensive Graduate Assistant
  • 2009 – New Mexico – Offensive Graduate Assistant

Bit of trivia here, also from the Vandy site:

“Moorehead spent five years in the NFL as a wide receiver with the Indianapolis Colts. He played on the Colts’ squad that captured Super Bowl XLI by defeating the Chicago Bears. The world championship allowed Moorehead and his father, Emery, to become the first father-son combo to both win a Super Bowl.”
