Keeping tabs on some old acquaintances.

A few updates to share about some former Philadelphia Eagles coaching assistants this Friday evening.

PRESS TAYLOR

The Eagles’ former passing game coordinator/quarterbacks coach is reportedly reuniting with former Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich in Indianapolis. Albert Breer says Taylor’s addition is designed to help offset the Colts losing former pass game coordinator Kevin Patullo to ... Nick Sirianni’s staff in Philly. Kind of a curious swap!

As you know, Doug Pederson reportedly wanted to promote Taylor to offensive coordinator this year if he was staying in Philly and that seemed to be a dealbreaker for Jeffrey Lurie.

It’ll be interesting to see how Taylor fares in his new environment. And given his friendly relationship with Carson Wentz, well, maybe that makes Indy even more appealing to Philly’s quarterback. Not that a trade is necessarily up to him.

CORY UNDLIN

Matt Patricia hired the former Eagles defensive backs coach to be his defensive coordinator in 2020. That move didn’t work out so well considering the Detroit Lions finished with the 32nd ranked defense in terms of DVOA.

Despite these struggles, Undlin has landed a new job with the San Francisco 49ers.

TIM HAUCK

Geoff Mosher reports Eagles safeties coach Tim Hauck will not be returning to Philly in 2021. Hauck had been coaching with the Eagles since joining Doug Pederson’s original coaching staff back in 2016.
