Under the new power structure created by Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, Chip Kelly has been given full control of the player personnel department. The reworking of responsibilities has led to a search for a new general manager. The team's assistant director of player personnel Ed Marynowitz is a candidate for the job, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.

Marynowitz has been with the team since 2012. He joined the Eagles after serving as the University of Alabama's director of player personnel, which involved managing the team's recruiting process. He worked at Alabama for four seasons [2008-11]. Prior to his role at the college powerhouse, he was a scouting assistant for the Dolphins under Bill Parcells and Jeff Ireland during the 2007 season.

Marynowitz is seen as a rising star in the organization, as he is still relatively young (30). He graduated with a bachelor's degree from the University of Central Florida in 2006. Marynowitz played quarterback for the Knights after transferring from La Salle University in his junior season. He is from Media, PA.
