Philadelphia Eagles Expected to Promote From Within for Offensive Coordinator

The Philadelphia Eagles will look inside their own ranks for an answer to their new offensive coordinator vacancy. Appearing on Philadelphia's 97.5 The Fanatic Wednesday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter stated he expects current quarterbacks coach Brian Johnson to land the job.

The Eagles have an opening at OC due to the Indianapolis Colts recently hiring Shane Steichen as their new head coach. Steichen wrapped up his duties as the Eagles' offensive coordinator in Sunday night's thrilling 38-35 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII. In his second year with the organization, he led the Eagles to top-five finishes in points scored, yards gained, and rushing yards.

Johnson has been with the Eagles since 2021 and has overseen the development of Jalen Hurts into a franchise quarterback and MVP candidate. Given the Eagles' incredible success this year, it makes sense that they won't bother looking outward for help on offense. They don't need it. It's better to keep building on what they've already established.
