The Eagles coaching staff has been picked over in recent years, and they’re backfilling with a guy they know well.

According to Bruce Feldman of The Athletic, the Eagles are hiring former quarterback G.J. Kinne as an offensive assistant.

Kinne worked on the coaching staff at SMU and Arkansas the last two years under Chad Morris.

A former undrafted rookie quarterback from Tulsa, he parts of three years with the Eagles (2013-15), on the practice squad then a third year in training camp after converting to wide receiver. He has also spent time with the Jets, along with stints in the CFL, UFL and Arena League.

  1. I’ve seen most of the NFC staffs get better this offseason. The only NFC staff I see as poor is in Minnesota. They added Gary Kubiak who asked that his son also be hired.

    With Zimmer going into his lame duck season this Kubiak hire screams as a back up plan in case Zimmer is fired in week 10 or so next season. Kubiak would finish out the season as interim head coach.

    I am not sure why they didn’t just fire Zimmer after 2018? Most everyone with any football knowledge at all see both Zimmer and Spielman being gone after 2019.

    Perhaps the Vikings can start on their way to a positive future in 2020.
