The Eagles 2020 coaching staff is coming together. 

According to an ESPN report, the Eagles will be adding both Rich Scangarello and Andrew Breiner to the coaching staff in 2020 on the offensive side of the ball. It is not yet clear what their titles will be. The team has also reportedly promoted Press Taylor to passing-game coordinator. In addition, the team has reportedly hired Aaron Moorehead as their new wide receiver coach, according to Philly Voice. 

While we wait for all of the hires to become official, here is what you need to know about the Eagles' new (reported) hires:

Aaron Moorehead: (Wide Receiver Coach) 

Replacing: Carson Walch 

*** Played in the NFL from 2003-2007 for the Indianapolis Colts. He caught 31 passes for 330 yards and one touchdown in 36 games. He won the Super Bowl with the Colts in 2006, catching five passes during the playoff run. 

*** Moorehead started his coaching career as a graduate assistant for New Mexico in 2009 before moving to Stanford as a graduate assistant from 2010-2012, the same time Zach Ertz was at the school. 

*** Moorehead moved to receivers coach in 2013 with Virginia Tech. He then worked for Texas A&M in the same role from 2015 to 2017, before being hired by Vanderbilt in 2018. 

Rich Scangarello (title not yet known)

*** Scangarello was the offensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos during the 2019 season, but was let go in January. He has spent most of his coaching career in college, but has been in the NFL since 2016, moving from the San Francisco 49ers to Denver. His time working under Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco was likely very appealing to the Eagles. 

*** Scangarello has bounced around quite a bit. He has had 12 jobs since 1998, with his longest stay being a four-year stint at UC Davis as their wide receiver/co-offensive coordinator. 

*** Scangarello was tasked with a tough job in Denver, working with veteran quarterback Joe Flacco and rookie Drew Lock. If Flacco becomes available as a free agent, his ties to Scangarello could make him an option as a veteran backup with the Eagles. 

Andrew Breiner (title not yet known)

*** Breiner has spent his entire coaching career in college, all along the offensive side of the ball.

*** His most recent job was the pass-game coordinator/quarterback coach for Mississippi State, where he coaches from 2018 to 2020. 

*** He was head coach at Fordham University from 2016 to 2017, but left to join Mississippi State. 

Press Taylor (passing-game coordinator)

*** Hired as a quality control coach by Chip Kelly prior to the 2013 season when Kelly was putting together his initial staff. Was one of only a few coaches that Doug Pederson kept on when taking over in 2016. 

*** Was promoted to quarterback's coach prior to the start of the 2018 season. 

*** Just 32-years old, Taylor coached at Tulsa from 2011 to 2012 as a quarterback's coach.
