We now know all the members of Chip Kelly’s first staff with the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles made the announcement on Friday of the men who will be working under the new head coach in Philadelphia. Many of the names were already reported over the last month, including offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and defensive coordinator Billy Davis, but the Eagles had not confirmed the hires until Friday.
One new name did emerge among the expected announcements. John Lovett will make the leap from the University of Cincinnati to the Eagles to serve as their defensive backs coach, the same role he held at Texas Tech last season before briefly joining the staff of the Bearcats. Lovett has also served as defensive coordinator at several colleges, including Auburn, Clemson and Cincinnati.
The rest of the staff looks like this: Dave Fipp (special teams), Greg Austin (assistant offensive line), Jerry Azzinaro (defensive line/assistant head coach), Bob Bicknell (wide receivers), Erik Chinander (assistant defensive line), Mike Dawson (defensive quality control), Matt Harper (assistant special teams), Josh Hingst (strength and conditioning), Shaun Huls (sports science coordinator), Bill Lazor (quarterbacks), Todd Lyght (assistant defensive backs), Bill McGovern (outside linebackers), Rick Minter (inside linebackers), Justin Peelle (assistant tight ends), Duce Staley (running backs), Jeff Stoutland (offensive line), Press Taylor (offensive quality control), Ted Williams (tight ends).
