Report: Eagles To Hire Billy Davis To Be Defensive Coordinator
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Cleveland Browns linebackers coach Billy Davis will be the next defensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles, a report says.
Geoff Mosher of Comcast Sportsnet reported the news via Twitter. Davis was one of many names rumored to be hired for the position.
The Eagles have yet to officially announce any official additions to Chip Kelly’s staff. Kelly was hired on January 16th.
Davis coaches the 3-4 defensive scheme, the same system Kelly is rumored to favor for the Eagles, who ran a 4-3 last season and for the last several years.
Davis was defensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals in 2009 and 2010, and for the San Francisco 49ers in 2005 and 2006. He’s coached defense in the NFL since 1992.
