The offseason is in full swing for Philadelphia Eagles as they have hired two Coaches to their staff. According to NBC sports the Eagles hired Tyler Brown their coaching Staff. Brown was hired as a special teams quality control coach. Joe Kasper was also hired according to SB Nation. Kasper will be the defensive quality control coach.
This comes after the Eagles have made multiple coaching hires since Nick Sirianni became head coach. Here is a look at the resumes of the new two new coaching hires for the Eagles.
Eagles hire new coach Tyler Brown
Brown is a former assistant coach at the University of Michigan under Jim Harbaugh. He served as a special teams analyst for Michigan from 2016 to 2020. Before being hired at Michigan, Brown was at Temple as a consultant for the football team for two years. .Brown’s father Randy Brown coached in the NFL as a special teams coach for the Ravens.
Before working at the college level, Brown established himself by working with top high school kickers in his home state New Jersey. Special teams seems to run in Brown’s blood, which could be good news for the Eagles. Brown will be working closely with current Eagles kicker Jake Elliot who has a 73 percent field goal percentage. Elliot’s career long is 53 yards. Brown seems to be a good hire for the Eagles and it will be interesting to see what he can bring to the coaching staff. This is a big step up for Brown as this would be first job in the NFL and could lead to an opening down the road for a higher level coaching job.
Eagles Hire new coach Joe Kasper
Kasper was a former football player himself at the Division III level as a safety. After playing football, he went straight to the NFL as an assistant for the Cleveland Browns where he helped with personnel and development. Kasper then went to the high school level and served as the defensive backs coach for Mentor high school from 2015-2016. He was also a wide receivers coach for John Carrol University.
Kasper was a graduate assistant for both defense and offense for a few years at Duke University. He also helped the Duke defense rank 24th nationally in fewest passing yards. The newly hired coach also held offenses to 201 passing yards or less in consecutive seasons according to his bio on the Duke University website. Kasper should be able to help the defense in defending the pass and maybe have the same success in holding teams to fewer yards in the passing game.He also ranked fifth in the Division I in defensive pass efficiency at 118.40 .Kasper has a impressive resume and already has good amount of coaching under his belt. It will be exciting to see what Kasper can do to help defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz.
These two young coaches should have every tool they need to become successful in the NFL with their background.
