Who Is the Philadelphia Eagles’ Offensive Coordinator?

After seeing Shane Steichen depart for Indianapolis, who is the Philadelphia Eagles' offensive coordinator for the 2023 NFL season?

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni felt the ramifications of success following the team’s run to Super Bowl LVII. Both his offensive coordinator Shane Steichen and defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon were poached for head coaching jobs this offseason. Now, who will fill the void as offensive coordinator for the Eagles?

Who Is the Philadelphia Eagles’ Offensive Coordinator?

Brian Johnson is Sirianni’s choice to fill the shoes left by Steichen, who is now the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. Johnson was promoted from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator following his success working with Jalen Hurts. Johnson and Hurts have a special connection that dates back nearly 20 years, when Hurts was just four years old.

While Johnson doesn’t have any experience as a play-caller in the NFL, he spent multiple seasons as the offensive coordinator for several high-powered offenses in college. That includes Florida, Houston, and Utah.

How Long Has Brian Johnson Been the Eagles’ Offensive Coordinator?

Johnson is heading into his first season as offensive coordinator for the Eagles. Back in 2021, Sirianni hired Johnson to be Philadelphia’s quarterbacks coach, which was Johnson’s first opportunity to coach in the NFL.

It’s clear that Johnson has made a strong impression on Sirianni and especially Hurts. His work as the QBs coach helped push Hurts to an elite level that many weren’t expecting him to reach so quickly. After earning his promotion to offensive coordinator, Johnson will likely be a strong candidate for head coaching vacancies next offseason.

Who Was the Offensive Coordinator Before Brian Johnson?

As mentioned, Steichen was Philadelphia’s OC before Johnson replaced him. As expected, Steichen was a hot commodity for head coaching vacancies this past offseason and was quickly hired by Indianapolis. Prior to their stint together in Philadelphia, Steichen and Sirianni had worked together with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Philadelphia’s offense went to another level when Steichen took over play-calling duties, as he took advantage of Hurts’ ability to run the ball. It will be exciting to see what Steichen does with rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson in Indianapolis.
