Another 2020 Eagles Coaching Staff Member Retained By Sirianni
New Eagles Head Coach Nick Sirianni is still going through the process of filling all the openings on his Coaching staff for the 2021 NFL season and after retaining Offensive Line Coach Jeff Stoutland, Sirianni will be keeping another familiar face from Doug Pederson's Coaching Staff
When the Eagles hired Aaron Moorehead before the 2020 season, he became the fourth different Wide Receiver Coach under Doug Pederson since he became Head Coach in 2016. Before coming to Philadelphia, Moorehead spent the previous seven years as a Wide Receivers Coach in College Football at Virginia Tech (2013-14), texas A&M (2015-17), and Vanderbilt (2018-19). Interesting to note that Moorehead worked with new Eagles Pass Game Coordinator Kevin Patullo at Texas A&M in 2017.
Aaron Moorehead played in the NFL with Indianapolis Colts from 2003 to 2007 and was a member of the team that won Super Bowl XLI along with catching 31 Passes from Peyton Manning. Moorehead was an Undrafted Free Agent who played his college ball at the University of Illinois from 1999-2002. Aaron and his father, Emery, became the first father-son duo to both win Super Bowl Rings - Emery Moorehead was the Starting Tight End for the 1985 Chicago Bears team that won Super Bowl XX.
Aaron Moorehead and Jeff Stoutland, both retained by Nick Sirianni from Doug Pederson's 2020 coaching staff, were both coaches at the collegiate level before getting their first NFL jobs with the Philadelphia Eagles. Stoutland coached at Alabama (2011-12), Miami, FL (2007-10), Michigan State (2000-06), and Syracuse (1997-99).
