Philadelphia Eagles Making Surprising Coaching Change?
Are the Philadelphia Eagles making a surprising coaching change?
Fresh off a disappointing 2019-20 campaign that saw Philadelphia barely make the postseason, head coach Doug Pederson opted to make some changes. Gone were offensive coordinator Mike Groh and wide receivers coach Carson Walch.
Who would be stepping into their shoes?
According Philadelphia Inquirer NFL insider Paul Domowitch, the answer is a little surprising.
It appears former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward and Baltimore Ravens tight ends coach Bobby Engram are in consideration.
This past season Ward served as an assistant coach for the New York Jets.

Engram has been with Baltimore for five years now.
Whoever Pederson ultimately selects, the hope is that the person finally sticks.
The one hallmark of Pederson’s reign up to this point has been the fact that he cycles through wide receivers coaches on an annual basis.
This past season the Eagles finished 9-7 and ended up losing to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card round.
