Offensive quality control assistant Press Taylor and special teams assistant Matthew Harper also will remain on the staff.

Former NFL defensive lineman Phillip Daniels, who played for Seattle, Chicagoand Washington, will serve as a defensive quality control assistant.

Eugene Chung, who previously coached with the Eagles on Andy Reid's staff, was hired as an assistant who will help with the offensive line, tight ends and the run game.

Dino Vasso will serve as defensive quality control coach and assist with the secondary.

The Eagles did not announce the hiring of a quarterbacks coach or a defensive line coach, despite earlier reports that the team was adding former Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo.
