The 40-year-old Sirianni helped Reich and the Colts engineer a Top 10 offense in two of the past three seasons. The Eagles hope that his experience on the offensive side of the ball will help lift a unit that was one of the league’s worst last season ranking 26th in points scored and 30th in turnovers.
