Eagles Coaching Staff: Who Is on Philadelphia’s Coaching Staff?

After a Super Bowl run that saw the Philadelphia Eagles take over as one of the league's best teams, Philly's coaching staff will look different in 2023.

After an impressive run to Super Bowl LVII, changes have been made to the Philadelphia Eagles coaching staff. Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni lost former offensive coordinator Shane Steichen and former defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon to head coaching vacancies with the Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals, respectively.

Philadelphia also lost a few assistant coaches in the offseason as well. Therefore, it’s time to hit the reset button and take a look at Philadelphia’s current coaching staff.

New Changes to Eagles Coaching Staff in 2023

There have been numerous changes made to Philadelphia’s coaching staff this offseason. In total, seven different coaches received a promotion or new title. Most notable is Brian Johnson, who was promoted from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator.

Johnson has a long-standing relationship with Jalen Hurts, and their bond is important in Philadelphia. Former NFL quarterback Alex Tanney was promoted to quarterbacks coach to fill the void left by Johnson’s promotion. Tanney is viewed as a rising star in the NFL and could take a similar path to New York Giants offensive coordinator Mike Kafka.

After being fired as the fall guy in Indianapolis last season, Marcus Brady was quickly hired as a consultant by the Eagles. He now has a full-time job in Philadelphia as a senior offensive assistant. Brady has plenty of NFL experience, including time as an offensive coordinator, which should only help Johnson in his first year as a play-caller in the NFL.

Philadelphia also made several additions to its coaching staff. Most notable is the hiring of Sean Desai as defensive coordinator. Desai spent his entire coaching career with the Chicago Bears before spending last season with the Seattle Seahawks. He’s a student of Vic Fangio and will look to bring his defensive scheme to Philadelphia.

Another intriguing addition to watch is Ronell Williams as Philadelphia’s nickels coach. While that isn’t exactly a common title in the NFL coaching world, Williams has an extensive history working with Desai in Chicago. It certainly seems like Williams is someone that Desai thinks highly of and wanted to bring with him to Philadelphia.

While there was plenty of controversy when it was first reported that the Eagles would hire Matt Patricia, the smoke has since cleared. Patricia surely made his fair share of mistakes as a head coach, but he should be able to help Philadelphia’s defensive staff. The offensive play-caller in New England last season, Patricia has coached a wide variety of positions in the NFL.

It’s also exciting and refreshing to see Nick Sirianni cast such a wide net during his search for assistant coaches. He continues to poach promising coaches from the collegiate level. D.J. Eliot, Taver Johnson, and Mike DiAngelo were each coaching in college last season. Johnson is the only one of the trio with experience coaching in the NFL.
