Rumor: Eagles Could Hire Johnnie Lynn As Cornerback Coach

Baltimore Ravens' insider Aaron Wilson is reporting that former Ravens' secondary coach Johnnie Lynn could be headed to Philadelphia as part of Juan Castillo's defensive staff. The team announced yesterday that Mike Zordich was promoted to secondary/safeties coach, which seemed to open the door for a position coach just for the corners. Off the top of my head, I can't remember the Eagles having a dedicated corner coach in recent years.

Lynn would bring a ton of experience to the staff having played 7 years in the league and coaching for the past 17. As BobQ pointed out, he's coached secondaries in Baltimore and San Francisco and has also been a defensive coordinator for the Giants.

The most recent of those jobs was with the 49ers, but he resigned for personal reasons in December of last year. At the time, head coach Mike Singletary would not comment on what caused him to leave.

"I visited with Johnnie before he left," Singletary said.  "All I’m going to say about that is that it’s something I will not comment on. But Johnnie and his family will deal with it, and I lose a good friend."
