Carson Walch promoted to WR coach


Carson Walch joined the Eagles coaching staff during the 2018 offseason and to work with wide receivers as the team’s assistant wide receivers coach. In 2019 he was promoted to WR Coach.

Prior to his return to the NFL, Walch spent two seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos (CFL) as offensive coordinator/receivers coach (2017) and receivers/passing game coordinator (2016). In 2015, Walch was an offensive consultant for the University of Minnesota.

From 2013-14, Walch served as an offensive quality control coach with the Chicago Bears, where he worked with Eagles offensive coordinator and former Bears wide receivers coach Mike Groh.

Walch also was a member of the Montreal Alouettes (CFL) coaching staff from 2010-12 (receivers coach, 2012; special teams assistant, 2010-11).

Before he began coaching professional football, Walch spent time at Winona State University (assistant head coach/offensive coordinator, 2007-09; wide receivers/passing game coordinator, 2000-02), University of St. Thomas (special teams coordinator/running backs coach, 2006) and Dakota State University (offensive coordinator, 2003-05).

Walch has an undergraduate and master’s degree in education from Winona State.

Phillip Daniels promoted to DL coach



A 15-season NFL veteran, Phillip Daniels joined the Eagles coaching staff during the 2016 offseason as the team’s defensive quality control/assistant defensive line coach. Daniels most recently served as the director of player development for the Washington Redskins in 2012.

In 2017, Daniels and defensive line coach Chris Wilson worked with a group that featured four players with 5-plus sacks, marking the first time since 2002 that four individual Eagles defensive linemen recorded 5-plus sacks in a single season. DE Brandon Graham led the team with a career-high 9.5 sacks, followed by Pro Bowl DT Fletcher Cox (5.5), DE Chris Long (5.0) and rookie DE Derek Barnett (5.0). Barnett’s 5.0 sacks were tied for fifth in the NFL among all rookies and Long tied for second in the league with four strip-sacks.

Originally a fourth-round selection by the Seattle Seahawks in the 1996 NFL Draft, Daniels played four seasons with the Seahawks (1996-99), four seasons with the Chicago Bears (2000-03) and seven seasons with the Redskins (2004-10). In 201 career games (167 starts), Daniels totaled 512 tackles (390 solo), 62 sacks, one interception, 51 passes defensed, 15 forced fumbles and 12 fumble recoveries.

A native of Donalsonville, GA, Daniels played college football at the University of Georgia from 1992-95 and finished his college career with 244 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and 12 sacks. He started at three different positions for the Bulldogs, including defensive end, defensive tackle and linebacker, while serving as a team captain as a senior.

Daniels and his wife, Leslie, have four children: DaVaris, DaKendrick, Damara and DaKiya. DaVaris played wide receiver at Notre Dame from 2011-14, spent time with the Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots prior to the 2015 NFL season and was voted the CFL’s Most Outstanding Rookie in 2016 while playing for the Calgary Stampeders.


Former Eagle Mike Bartrum added to the staff
(reportedly as offensive quality control/assistant tight ends coach)




The Eagles are hiring former Philadelphia tight end and long snapper Mike Bartrum to their coaching staff. This WCHS report says Bartrum has “accepted a job as the tight ends coach and evaluator” with the Eagles.

The Eagles already have a tight ends coach in Justin Peelle, who has been with Philadelphia since 2013. There’s been no indication the Eagles are moving on from Peelle — nor should there be given the success Philly’s tight ends have had — so perhaps Bartrum is coming on as something like an offensive quality control/assistant tight ends coach.

Bartrum played in the NFL from 1993 through 2006. He was the Eagles’ long snapper and backup tight end from 2000 through 2006. During his time in Philadelphia, Bartrum logged nine receptions for 63 yards and four touchdowns.

A neck injury forced Bartrum to retire in 2007. His long snapping role on the Eagles was replaced by a name you might recognize: Jon Dorenbos.

Bartrum has spent the last seven years as the head coach at Meigs Local High School in Ohio. He also served as the Meigs County Comissioner prior to stepping down in order to take a job with the Eagles.

So both coaches we hired are promotions, cause we all we got, we all we need 

well if you have up and coming coaches you like it's good to promote from within cause that gives you better chances at other up and coming coaches.
