The Philadelphia Eagles have neared completion of their 2011 coaching staff, announcing several changes on Tuesday.
Johnny Lynn has been hired for the team’s secondary/cornerbacks coaching position, while Bobby April, Jr., whose father is the Eagles’ special teams coordinator, has been hired as a defensive quality control coach.
Offensively, David Culley has been promoted to senior offensive assistant/wide receivers coach, quarterbacks coach James Urban is now the assistant offensive coordinator, and offensive quality control coach Doug Pederson has been elevated to quarterbacks coach.
Pederson played quarterback for 12 seasons in the NFL, including eight seasons as Brett Favre’s back-up with the Green Bay Packers.
Former Eagles running back Duce Staley has been hired a special teams quality control coach, but will also help Ted Williams with the team’s running backs.
