Is Jeff Stoutland staying with the Eagles?
A staple to the Eagles coaching staff could be staying in Philadelphia. Today the Alabama Crimson Tide hired former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marone as their new offensive line coach. While this might seem like non-news, the move allows the Eagles to retain Jeff Stoutland. For several weeks there was heavy speculation that Stoutland would leave for the Alabama job. He was previously their offensive line coach from 2011 to 2012.
Stoutland has been a part of the Eagles organization since 2013. His coaching has been monumental to their success. Jason Kelce, Jordan Mailata, Lane Johnson, and Jason Peters have all grown tremendously under him. Without his presence, this Eagles group would have nowhere near the depth they have currently.
It is unclear if the new head coach will retain Stoutland, but he is still under contract with the Eagles. While he can pursue a college job, his contract prohibits Stoutland from taking another job in the NFL.
Retaining Jeff Stoutland is a must for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2021.
