The Eagles have announced the addition of Jim Washburn, formerly of the Tennessee Titans, as the new defensive line coach. Washburn comes with a sterling reputation and is considered a major coup for the Eagles.
“We are thrilled to add a quality defensive line coach in Jim Washburn,” said head coach Andy Reid. “He had a great tenure with Jeff Fisher and the Tennessee Titans and he’ll play a big part in the development of our defensive line moving forward. He’s had a number of Pro Bowl players working under him over the years with the Titans and we’re happy to have him join our coaching staff in Philadelphia.”
Said Washburn: “Words cannot express the gratitude I have for Jeff Fisher and the Titans organization for allowing a nobody like me to coach in the NFL for the last 12 years.
