The Eagles have made a pair of changes to their coaching staff.
Philadelphia has hired Cory Undlin to coach defensive backs and promoted Justin Peelle to tight ends coach, the team said Monday night.
Undlin, 43, coached the Broncos’ defensive backs the last two seasons. He replaces John Lovett, the Eagles’ defensive backs coach since 2013.
The Eagles allowed the second-most passing yards in 2014 and were 32nd in this category in 2013. On the other hand, the club was last in time of possession in both seasons, which is probably part and parcel with the passing numbers.
Peelle, the assistant Eagles’ tight ends coach in Chip Kelly’s first two seasons, takes over for Ted Williams. A Philadelphia assistant since 1995, Williams coached tight ends the last two seasons.
The 35-year-old Peelle played tight end in the NFL for 10 seasons (2002-2011).
Lovett and Williams will work in pro scouting for the Eagles, the team said.
