Jeff Stoutland to remain as offensive line coach
Massive news for the Eagles. After reports stating he might be taking the Alabama job, Eagles offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland stays with the team. This news comes after a flurry of hirings, including Jonathan Gannon and Kevin Patullo.
Stoutland has been a part of the Eagles organization since 2013. It will also be the third Eagles head coach to have Jeff Stoutland on their staff. 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.
This hiring allows Stoutland to continue his development with the young core of this line. It also shows that Sirianni is open to retaining former Eagles staff members. There has been no indication before this that any coach would be staying with the Eagles. Dave Fipp was allowed to explore other opportunities yesterday.
