There may have been better offensive line coaches back in the day when Vince Lombardi was the Packers head coach in the 1960s and the Power Sweep made it easier for Paul Hornung and Jim Taylor to gain great gobs of yards.
Against every team but the Eagles, who handed Vince his only playoff defeat in the 1960s NFL title game.
But that’s ancient history.
The Eagles offensive line has been a strength for the Eagles this season and the coach for the unit is reportedly on his way to a new deal.
Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports that offensive line coach and run game coordinator Jeff Stoutland has agreed to terms on an extension with the Eagles. There’s no word on those terms.
Stoutland has been the offensive line coach in Philadelphia since 2013 and he added the run game coordinator title in 2018. He worked in the college ranks before joining the Eagles and worked at Alabama, Miami, Michigan State, and Syracuse before moving to the professional level.
A league source confirms that Eagles Oline coach and running game coordinator Jeff Stoutland has agreed to multiyear contract extension to stay in Philly
I’m told multiple teams were interested in Jeff as their OC but the best Oline coach in the NFL will be staying pic.twitter.com/Zmpm5eM0qK
