The Philadelphia Eagles are hiring Keiser University assistant head coach/offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Roy Istvan to their coaching staff, according to a report from Football Scoop (hat tip @igglesnut).

Istvan has ties to current Eagles offensive line coach/run game coordinator Jeff Stoutland. Istvan played college football at Southern Connecticut State while Stoutland served as offensive coordinator there. Istvan then joined Stoutland on the SCSU coaching staff after graduating.

With the Eagles reportedly deciding not to renew the contract for assistant offensive line/tight ends/run game coach Eugene Chung, they had a vacancy for an assistant to Stoutland. It appears Istvan will be Chung’s replacement.

It seems like the Eagles will soon be officially announcing coaching changes given that we’re seeing some hires leak out to the public. On Tuesday, it was reported former Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Matt Burke will be joining Philadelphia’s coaching staff as a “top aide” to Jim Schwartz.

The Eagles still have vacancies to fill at wide receivers coach and defensive line coach with Gunter Brewer essentially getting fired and Chris Wilson not being renewed. It’s possible the Eagles could just promote assistant wide receivers coach Carson Walch and defensive quality control/assistant defensive line coach Phillip Daniels.

We’ll see.
