Todd Bowles Hired to Run the Eagles Defensive Backs

Former Dolphins assistant coach Todd Bowles has turned down an offer from the Raiders and has taken the Eagles defensive backs coach job.

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Bowles will be in charge of cornerbacks and that Juan Castillo will remain the team’s defensive coordinator.

An assistant head coach/secondary coach with the Dolphins, the 48-year-old Bowles became the interim head coach after the firing of Tony Sparano and led the Dolphins to a 2-1 record to finish the season. Bowles had been with the Dolphins since following Bill Parcells, Jeff Ireland and Tony Sparano to South Florida from the Dallas Cowboys, where he had coached the secondary.

Bowles has aspirations to be a head coach in the NFL and was a candidate for the Dolphins job as well as vacancies with the Raiders and St. Louis Rams.

  1. Obnoxious REDSKINS fan says:

    Great to see the EAGLES take over the REDSKINS’ former role of winning the off-season, then being abject failures at accomplishing anything during the regular season. Keep it up Iggles.

    Amd note to LURIE:

    Thanx for retaining your head coach.
