Eagles Dump Assistant Secondary Coach Otis Smith

The Daily News has the story today of the Eagles dumping assistant secondary coach Otis Smith:

Eagles assistant secondary coach Otis Smith no longer is with the team, an Eagles spokesman confirmed yesterday. No further information was offered. Smith, a 13-year NFL cornerback who played for the Birds early in his career, joined the coaching staff as an intern in 2007 and was promoted in 2008.

He worked under secondary coach Sean McDermott, who currently is running the defense while coordinator Jim Johnson takes a leave of absence during his cancer treatment. The Eagles recently brought in former Dallas defensive coordinator Brian Stewart to assist McDermott, mainly with the secondary. It’s unclear whether that move had anything to do with Smith’s departure.
