Eagles hired Bill Musgrave for Nick Foles, according to report

USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles made their latest coaching hire with their starting quarterback in mind.

The Eagles think enough of quarterback Nick Foles to make coaching hires based on his personality. That is exactly what the team did with the hiring of new quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave, according to Philly.com's Jeff McLane. Adding Musgrave to the staff was with "Foles in mind," according to McLane.

The move may actually lead to more success for Foles, as McLane reports that he and Bill Lazor "occasionally butted heads over the coach's intensity." Musgrave is said to be more of a mild-mannered instructor, which will likely jell with Foles' calm demeanor.

The Eagles still have not confirmed Musgrave's hiring, but if McLane's sources are accurate, the move says a lot about how the team feels about Foles. The front office is giving him all he needs to be successful, so really it is on him to deliver. Musgrave has helped develop pocket passers such as Matt Ryan, Byron Leftwich and Jason Campbell in the past, so his experience should benefit both Foles and Matt Barkley in 2013.
