PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Philadelphia Eagles have added two to their coaching staff, and promoted another.
Bill Musgrave will be the Eagles quarterbacks coach, Mike Clay will be the team’s defensive quality control coach, and Mike Dawson will move from defensive quality control coach to assistant defensive line coach.
Musgrave fills the vacancy at QB coach that Bill Lazor left behind. Lazor left to join the Dolphins as offensive coordinator.
Musgrave, 46 years old, played in the NFL from 1991 until 1996, and has been an NFL coach since he stopped playing, most recently as the Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator from 2011 until last season. Musgrave was the quarterbacks coach under Ray Rhodes for the Eagles in 1998.
Musgrave also served as assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach for the Falcons from 2006 until 2008, where he assisted in the development of Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan.
A former linebacker under Chip Kelly at the University of Oregon, Michael Clay joins the Eagles as the team’s defensive quality control coach. A four-year letterman for the Ducks from 2009-12, Clay, 22, earned second-team All-Pac 12 honors as a senior after recording 101 tackles, three sacks and one forced fumble while starting all 12 contests. Following his senior season, Clay signed with the Miami Dolphins as an undrafted free agent in 2013, but did not make the team.
