Report: Eagles will Allow Scangarello’s Contract to Expire
In an expectedly turbulent offseason for the Philadelphia Eagles, the first domino has officially fallen.
According to Inside the Birds, the Eagles will let senior offensive assistant Rich Scangarello's contract expire. He won't be returning to the staff in 2021.
Scangarello, 48, was brought in last offseason to provide fresh ideas and concepts to the offensive side. The creative mind spearheading the Denver Broncos' offense in 2019, Scangarello joined forces with pass game analyst Andrew Breiner and veteran offensive mind Marty Mornhinweg -- who served as an offensive consultant -- in Philadelphia in hopes of establishing an elaborate offensive attack.
Scangarello struggled as a first-time play-caller in Denver, but his two-year stint in Kyle Shanahan's West Coast offense was expected to yield new wrinkles in protections, play actions, and the running/screen game.
While the offense struggled to combat predictability, consistency -- and eclipsing the 30-point barrier -- changes were assuredly on the horizon.
In a Zoom call with reporters last week, Pederson intimated a focus on eliminating excess of opinions on the offensive side:
"But at the end of the day, I want to make sure there's one voice, and that's my voice, that's heard offensively and no one else's. That's the part that I've got to get across to the staff, and I have done that. I want to make sure there's one voice talking to the quarterbacks, whoever is in the room. [Passing game coordinator/quarterbacks coach] Press [Taylor] has been in that room, [pass game analyst] Andrew Breiner has been in that room."
