While we all wait for more clarity on the Carson Wentz trade saga, there is some Philadelphia Eagles coaching news to report. According to Adam Caplan, the team has added two more assistants to Nick Sirianni’s staff: Joe Kasper and Tyler Brown.
Kasper is joining the Eagles as a defensive quality control coach.
He played safety at Baldwin Wallace University (Division III) and entered the NFL in a front office role before getting into coaching. Here’s a snapshot of his experience:
2013-2015 — Cleveland Browns player personnel and development assistant
2015-2016 — Mentor High School defensive backs coach
2017 — John Carroll University wide receivers coach
2018-2019 — Graduate assistant coach/defensive backs
2020 — Graduate assistant coach/offense
Kasper notably overlapped with Eagles offensive coordinator Shane Steichen in Cleveland in 2013. His Ohio roots might also be relevant since Sirianni attended college in that state.
Brown is joining the Eagles as a special teams quality control coach.
Tyler is the son of former Eagles assistant and current Baltimore Ravens special teams coach Randy Brown.
Here’s a snapshot of the younger Brown’s coaching experience:
2014-2015 — Temple consultant (specialists)
2016-2020 — Michigan special teams analyst
Brown, a Marlton, New Jersey native, has worked under some prolific head coaches in Matt Rhule and Jim Harbaugh. If he’s anything like his dad, who has overseen a good deal of special teams success in Baltimore, seems like a quality hire. (See what I did there?)
Though Kasper and Brown are joining the Eagles in lower-level positions, they’re candidates to be internally promoted down the road.
Additional coaching note: Eagles assistant wide receivers coach Matt Harper is NOT returning for his eighth season in Philly. He’s joining the San Francisco 49ers as an assistant special teams coach.
Here’s an overview of the Eagles’ coaching additions this offseason:
Joe Kasper — Defensive quality control coach
Tyler Brown — Special teams quality control coach
