Former Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel Ed Marnoywitz has reportedly accepted a job offer with the Alabama Crimson Tide, according to a report from Aaron Suttles of The Tuscaloosa News. His new job title remains to be announced.
Marynowitz was fired by the Eagles in late December when the team also decided to fire former head coach Chip Kelly. Marynowitz had served as Kelly's right hand man when it came to running the player personnel department.
It's not a surprise to see Marynowitz end up back in Alabama because he served as the school’s director of player personnel from 2008-2011 before joining the Eagles in 2012. Marynowitz supposedly has a good relationship with Alabama head coach Nick Saban.
Speaking of relationships, it's been reported that Marynowitz and current Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman "butted heads" in the past. Roseman reportedly had a big role in the firing of Marynowitz and Kelly.
The Eagles' hire of Marynowitz was highly praised last offseason but now he's out of the NFL entirely just one year later. The 31-year-old executive is still young so maybe he'll get another chance in the league one day.
