PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The Philadelphia Eagles have hired Mike Groh as the team's new wide receivers coach.

The team said the Eagles agreed to terms with Groh on Monday afternoon.

The details of the terms were not immediately released.

Groh, 45, spent the 2016 season as the passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach with the Los Angeles Rams.

Between 2013 and 2015, he was the wide receivers coach for the Chicago Bears.

His time in Chicago overlapped with Eagles vice president of player personnel, Joe Douglas.

"We are excited to add Mike Groh to our coaching staff. Mike brings with him a vast array of experience coaching wide receivers in the NFL and college. Over his career, he has demonstrated a great ability as a teacher and as a motivator and we look forward to him getting started in Philadelphia," Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said in a statement.

The Eagles parted ways with wide receivers coach Greg Lewis earlier this month.
