PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The Eagles have named Jim Washburn as their new defensive line coach. He replaces Rory Segrest, who was fired over the weekend (see related story).

Washburn is widely regarded as one of the best D-line coaches in the NFL; he has spent the last 12 seasons in that position with the Tennessee Titans. Since 1999, the Titans are seventh in the NFL in sacks, with 474, and they were fifth in the league against the run, at just over 102 yards per game.

Washburn’s coaching résumé also includes stints at several colleges, in the Arena Football League, and in the now-defunct World Football League.

The Eagles are still looking for a new defensive coordinator to replace the fired Sean McDermott (see related story), who has since moved on to become the defensive coordinator for Carolina.

Reported by Matt Leon, KYW Newsradio 1060.
