The Philadelphia Eagles boldly hired 40-year-old Nick Sirianni to be their head coach in 2021 after he spent three seasons as the Indianapolis Colts’ offensive coordinator. Two years into his career with the Eagles, Sirianni has already led the Eagles to a Super Bowl appearance. We’re going to dive into everything you need to know about Sirianni.
The Mount Union graduate has been coaching since finishing his undergrad degree, coaching at his alma mater and Indiana (PA) before getting the call-up to the NFL under Todd Haley. Sirianni had met Haley while attending the same YMCA during the time Sirianni was in college, and Haley was the Chicago Bears wide receivers coach. Haley, the former Kansas City Chiefs head coach, oversaw Sirriani for two seasons before Romeo Crennel took over.
Sirianni also spent five seasons with the Chargers before promoting to the Colts’ OC job. His background includes coaching defensive backs, wide receivers, and quarterbacks. It’s not a surprise he’s shown the ability to identify and develop both coaching talent and player personnel on both sides of the ball with his experience.
Let’s dive further into Sirianni’s other accomplishments thus far in his career.
Breakdown of Nick Sirianni’s Career Record, Salary, Net Worth, and More
With just shy of 20 years of coaching experience, despite being only 41 years old, Sirianni has already built an impressive resume. We’re looking at his career record, his salary, and net worth, and his current contract with the Eagles.
Sirianni’s Career Record
Sirianni’s first season as the head coach of the Eagles ended with a 9-8 mark. The Eagles lost 31-15 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Wild Card Round. However, it was an impressive year that built momentum for the franchise as they finished the year with a 7-3 record before reaching the postseason.
The Eagles finished 12th in offensive scoring and 14th in yards created. They were the NFL’s most-productive rushing team as they developed quarterback Jalen Hurts in his second season. This set the stage for their 2022 breakout.
Philadelphia finished tied for the best record in the NFL in 2022 at 14-3. They boasted the third-most points and yards created on offense and the second-fewest yards allowed on defense. Sirianni’s offense was ranked third in offensive EPA created, and his defense was fourth in EPA allowed.
His playoff success also took a jump in 2022. The Eagles blew out the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers en route to a Super Bowl 57 appearance, narrowly falling to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Sirianni has a 23-11 regular season record and a 2-2 playoff record thus far.
Salary and Net Worth
Not even two years into his deal, it’s not a surprise Sirianni isn’t one of the top-10 highest-paid NFL coaches, but his time is surely coming. NFL coach salaries aren’t always made public, but multiple outlets have estimated that he’s paid between $6-$7 million per season. That would put him in the middle of the pack of NFL head coaches.
Compare that to Bill Belichick’s $20 million-a-year deal or Pete Carroll’s $15 million-a-year deal, and Sirianni is a great value to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie. However, winning a Super Bowl would ensure a considerable raise in short order. It’s possible a new deal for him could eclipse the $10 million total.
Sirianni’s net worth is estimated to be around $15 million considering his contract with the Eagles and time spent as an offensive coordinator with the Colts. That’s not too bad for the Jamestown, New York product.
Sirianni’s Current Contract With the Eagles
Signed to a five-year deal in 2021, his contract runs through the 2025 season. His full contract is worth between $30 and $35 million dollars. Considering only eight NFL head coaches make more than $10 million per year, winning a Super Bowl would give Sirianni the ability to ask to join the rare club on a new contract.
The Eagles previously won the Super Bowl under Doug Pederson in 2017-18 but fired him three years after climbing to the top of the NFL mountain. Pederson had earned an extension after their Super Bowl victory. Sirianni is hoping to build a more sustainable situation than Pederson was able to.
