The Eagles have hired Marquand Manuel as their defensive backs coach, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.

Manuel interviewed earlier this week.

Manuel, 40, was the Falcons’ defensive backs coach when they went to the Super Bowl. The Falcons promoted him to coordinator the following season.

Manuel began his coaching career with the Seahawks, after a playing career that lasted eight seasons with the Bengals, Seahawks, Packers, Panthers, Broncos and Lions.

  1. Carson Yutz brain is made of empty glass, he’s the NFL dumbest player he has no heart no desire to win, he’s terrible for chemistry most of the locker room hates him .
    Wentz has zero playoff wins and is 7-20 vs teams over 500 They should have kept
    NickFoles

  2. Nick foles is 24-6 in his last 30 starts as an eagle that’s the guy they got rid of ? Literally the most menatllay disturbed general manager in history FIRE HOWIE ROSMAN

    Neither Foles or Wentz play DB. Not sure why the hiring of a D-Backs coach would prompt you to mention either of them. The GM’s name is Roseman not Rosman, He won a Super Bowl.

  4. Change associated with Eagles secondary is probably welcome, but much remains to be seen in the handling of the current personnel this offseason.

    The head coach won the super bowl not the Gm

  7. Great hiring

    Nobody wants to join us offensively, I dont know why but this hiring is great, a good Db coach who was a promising until the witch hunting in Atlanta started

  8. And to think Undlin jumps to the Lions as a coordinator. Desperate move made by a desperate head coach of a desperate franchise supported by desperate fan base.
