Eagles reportedly hire Dick Jauron as secondary coach

Last month, Eagles special defensive assistant and defacto defensive backs coach Brian Stewart left to become the defensive coordinator at the University of Houston. His departure left a hole in the Eagles defensive staff and that vacancy will be filled by former Bill's head coach Dick Jauron.

Jauron was fired this year midway through his fourth season as coach of the Buffalo Bills. He was also head coach of the Bears for five years as well as an interim coach with the Lions. Jauron started his NFC coaching career as a defensive backs coach in Buffalo before holding the same position in(and here comes the connection) Green Bay from 1986 to 1994. Andy Reid joined the Packers' staff in 1992.

By hiring Jauron, Andy not only brings in a friend, and a guy who has been a very good defensive coach, but also a guy with real experience to help out Sean McDermott. It certainly seems to be a strong hire.
