Brian Stewart has had a busy past few years, and his life is entering yet another phase. The experienced coach spent the 2009 season with the Eagles as a defensive assistant after a 2-year stint as the Dallas Cowboys’ defensive coordinator, and is now headed to the University of Houston football team for a new job. The details of his coaching contract were not disclosed when he was signed by Philadelphia last offseason, but it has become apparent that it either expired or included some sort of an opt-out option, for Stewart (pictured) reportedly accepted a deal with Houston with ease earlier today.
He worked with various collegiate teams as well as the Houston Texans and San Diego Chargers of the NFL prior to his hiring by the Cowboys, and is looking forward to returning to the NCAA despite enjoying this past season with the Eagles. Birds’ head coach Andy Reid released this statement regarding Stewart’s departure: “We thank Brian for the job he did this past year in Philadelphia. He’s a good football coach and he’s well deserving of this new opportunity. He will bring a great deal of coaching experience to the already strong football staff at the University of Houston. We wish Brian and his family all the best.”
