Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni’s coaching staff for the 2021 season continues to take shape.

The latest addition comes on the defensive side of the ball. Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports that the team has hired Nick Rallis as their linebackers coach.

Rallis spent the last three seasons with the Vikings. He was a defensive quality control coach and assistant linebackers coach during his time with the team. He was a graduate assistant at Wake Forest in 2017 after wrapping up his playing career at the University of Minnesota.

New Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon also spent time with the Vikings, but he left for the Colts as Rallis was starting his stint with the team.

  1. WOW!, the Eagles are hiring a dream team of coaches from around the NFL, i think the rest of the division should be very afraid of this coaching staff, especially after that run through a brick wall of a speech last week from their “head” coach…..LOL!

  2. This guy is younger than alot of players on the team. The next thing you’ll know is they will hire a high school senior to be the runningback coach. Boy is this team going to stink. I don’t think the Eagles will win another Super Bowl with Jeff Lurie as their owner.

  3. Zimmer knows it’s all on his vast coaching experience to prevent himself from being home for the holidays next season. No players or assistants will camouflage his shortcomings anymore…….there’s nobody left!

    Why? It’s not like they even have any linebackers.

    We have linebackers. Watch the tape. They’re the guys running way behind the guy with the ball as he scores a TD. Sometimes they are off camera though.

  5. Wow I played football with his oldest brother and remember when he was just a little kid running around. He’s gotta be younger than half the guys he will be coaching.

  6. Couldn’t pay me to live in either city but going from one of the great fanbases to the absolute worst.
