The Philadelphia Eagles have hired a new assistant wide receivers coach, according to multiple reports. His name is Carson Walch and he most recently coached with the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League.

Carson Walch. Carson Wentz. Are they related? Probably not, but there’s no way to know for sure.
Anyway, here’s a snapshot of his resume via the Eskimos’ website.
The noteworthy connection to the Eagles on there is Walch’s stint with the Bears in 2013-2014. Current Eagles offensive coordinator Mike Groh was Chicago’s wide receivers coach from 2013-2015.
With Walch only set to be an assistant wide receivers coach, it remains to be seen who will take Groh’s old title as the Eagles’ wide receivers coach. The hire of Walch might signal the Eagles have made a decision on that position as well.
In other Eagles coaching news, the team reportedly promoted coaching assistant Spencer Phillips to Press Taylor’s old position of offensive quality control coach/assistant quarterbacks coach. Taylor is now the Eagles’ quarterbacks coach.
The Eagles have yet to officially confirm these coaching hires. I guess they’re waiting to do it all at once.
