Philadelphia Eagles Extend Offensive Line Coach

The Philadelphia Eagles will hold onto the coach most responsible for the team's perennial strong suit. Per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the team has extended offensive line coach/run game coordinator Jeff Stoutland.

Stoutland arrived with the Eagles at his current position in 2013 and has overseen some of the league's most dominant offensive lines. He has helped shape center Jason Kelce and tackle Lane Johnson into regular Pro Bowlers and coached the Eagles to two conference championships with two different head coaches.

When the Eagles have succeeded over the past decade, Stoutland's offensive lines and run games have played a huge part. The 2017 Super Bowl Champion squad finished with a top-five rushing attack in yards per game, and the same goes for this year's squad. 

The Eagles have fielded four different top-five scoring offenses with three different leading passers under Stoutland's tenure; they're fortunate he doesn't seem to be in any rush to find a promotion to offensive coordinator somewhere. At 60 years old, he's likely content with the role he has.
