Eagles Promote Patch, Add Rick Mueller To Front Office

The Eagles have filled out their front office staff in the wake of Ryan Grigson's departure to the Colts and have done with a mix of internal promotions and outside hires.

33 year old Anthony Patch has been promoted to Director of College Scouting. He's spent the last 10 years in the teams' college scouting department and was most recently Ryan Grigson's assistant. So he would seem to be a natural candidate to be promoted.

The team did go outside the organization to fill their Player Personnel Exec job with Rick Mueller, who has 15 years of NFL experience. He's worked in pro personnel and college scouting for both the Saints and Jaguars organizations. He's helped put together six playoff teams, three of which have advanced to the conference title game. He left the Saints in 2008 to become an executive in the UFL.

"We are very pleased to promote Anthony and add Rick to our scouting staff," said Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman. "Anthony has been one of our top talent evaluators during his tenure as a college scout, has great relationships throughout football and is an extremely hard worker. Rick brings a wealth of NFL experience while giving us a new and fresh set of eyes to evaluate incoming talent. They will both play a role in helping us prepare for this offseason of free agency and the draft."
