Word of Bill Musgrave’s addition to Chip Kelly’s staff in Philadelphia as the team’s quarterbacks coach has been floating around for about a week, but the team made it official on Monday.
The Eagles officially announced Musgrave’s arrival with a press release. Musgrave will take over for Bill Lazor, who is the new offensive coordinator in Miami. Musgrave was the Vikings’ offensive coordinator for the last three seasons and worked with the quarterbacks in Atlanta for five years before heading to Minnesota. Musgrave also spent a year as an offensive assistant with the Eagles early in his coaching career.
The Eagles also announced two other changes to the coaching staff. Mike Dawson has been promoted from defensive quality control coach to assistant defensive line coach to replace Erik Chinander, who left for a job at the University of Oregon.
Michael Clay, who played for Kelly at Oregon, has been hired to fill the quality control role that Dawson held last season.
