New head coach Doug Pederson used to play for the Eagles and now he might be hiring an assistant who used to as well. According to a report from Howard Eskin, the Eagles could bring back Greg Lewis as the team's wide receiver coach. Yes, that Greg Lewis!

The 35-year-old Lewis is currently an offensive assistant with the Saints. Before joining New Orleans in 2015, he coached wide receivers at San Diego (2012), San Jose State (2013), and Pittsburgh (2014).

Lewis signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2003. He finished his Philadelphia tenure with 127 receptions for 1,699 yards and seven touchdowns over the course of six seasons. Lewis was eventually traded to the Patriots but never made the team and ended up with the Vikings. After two years with Minnesota, Lewis retired following the 2010 season.

The Eagles are in need of a wide receiver coach after Chip Kelly hired Bob Bicknell to join him with the San Francisco 49ers.
