- I put an asterisk (*) next to the names of people who were retained from last year.
- Johnson’s connection with Jalen Hurts is sure looking more relevant with Carson Wentz expected to be traded.
- It’s interesting the Eagles are handing out the assistant head coach title to Singleton, who is a new addition to Philly. Especially when he doesn’t have any obvious connections to Sirianni.
- Tanney is a previously unreported addition. The New York Giants backup quarterback only retired from the NFL a couple of days ago. Tanney’s first offseason in the NFL overlapped with Sirianni when the latter was a quality control coach in Kansas City.
- The Eagles are keeping Washburn (Jim’s son) around in his dual front office/coaching role.
- Pannunzio was previously the Eagles’ “director of team development.” He’s moving back into a special teams title after previously having some experience there at Alabama. He’s a veteran for Clay, the youngest coordinator in the entire NFL, to lean on.
- Scudder has a vague “Coaches assistant” title. He previously served as Iowa State’s senior defensive quality control coach for the past three years.
- Rath saw a promotion after joining the Eagles as their “director of sports performance” last year.
- Noriega worked under Rath on the Los Angeles Rams, who’ve been one of the healthiest teams over the past few years. He replaces Josh Hingst, who recently joined the Minnesota Vikings after being in Philly since 2013.
