According to a report from ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan, the Eagles are expected to hire former Bears associate director of pro personnel Dwayne Joseph. Caplan reports Joseph will be Philadelphia's new director of pro personnel.

As you can see, Joseph shares a relationship with current Eagles vice president of player personnel Ed Marynowitz.

Joseph is set to replace former Eagles director of pro personnel Rick Mueller, whom the team fired earlier this month. Mueller had been with the team since 2012.

Some more background on Joseph, via ChicagoBears.com:

"Dwayne Joseph is in his second season as Associate Director of Pro Personnel after spending the 2012 season as Chicago’s Assistant Director of Pro Scouting. This is Joseph’s second stint in the Bears front office, previously spending six seasons (1998-2003) in Chicago’s football operations department including the last three (2001-03) as Director of Player Development.

Prior to rejoining the Bears, Joseph has spent eight years (2004-11) with the Miami Dolphins, serving as a pro scout in seven of those eight seasons. He also served as Miami’s Assistant Director of Pro Personnel in 2007. In 2005, Joseph represented the Dolphins at the NFL-Stanford Program for Managers and during the 2007 offseason, he was selected to participate in the NFL Football Operations Personnel Symposium."

Joseph played one season in the NFL after signing with the Bears as an undrafted free agent. In 1995, he recorded 31 tackles, two interceptions, and one forced fumble in 16 games played (one start).

UPDATE: Official confirmation.

UPDATE #2: Eagles also made a promotion.
