Chip Kelly Finalizes His Coaching StaffBREAKING NEWS, Coaching Staff, Eagles, News Friday, February 8th, 2013
With the selection of Billy Davis as his defensive coordinator, new Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has finalized his coaching staff. Kelly will hold a new conference on Monday afternoon at 1:30pm to discuss his staff.
Pat Shurmur (offensive coordinator) This is second time through Philadelphia. Shurmur will be in charge of the passing game and that could hopefully be a smooth transition since the quarterbacks and receivers have been playing it since they put on the Eagles uniforms..
Bill Davis (defensive coordinator) Davis isn’t a pure 3-4 guy like he was advertised. He really employs a 4-3 defense in the under alignment with the backers stacked behind the offensive linemen. It means the Eagles already have the personnel to play the defense. I’m glad Kelly decided to play a defense for which they already have the personnel.
Dave Fipp (special teams coordinator) He was most recently the assistant special teams coach in Miami where they had a special teams unit amongst the beest in the league.
Jeff Stoutland (offensive line) He may be the best hire of all the bunch. Hopefully he can have the Eagles offensive line dominating the way his Crimson Tide crew has done for years.
Greg Austin (assistant offensive line)
Jerry Azzinaro (defensive line/assistant head coach)
Bob Bicknell (wide receivers)
Erik Chinander (assistant defensive line)
Mike Dawson (defensive quality control)
Matt Harper (assistant special teams)
Josh Hingst (strength and conditioning)
Shaun Huls (sports science coordinator)
Bill Lazor (quarterbacks)
John Lovett (defensive backs)
Todd Lyght (assistant defensive backs)
Bill McGovern (outside linebackers)
Rick Minter (inside linebackers)
Justin Peelle (assistant tight ends)
Duce Staley (running backs)
