In what has come to be a theme of this offseason, the Eagles are losing but another entrance office environment govt.
This 1 will harm.
Eagles vice president of player staff Andy Weidl is leaving the business following six seasons to be a part of the Pittsburgh Steelers as their assistant basic manager, NBC Athletics Philadelphia’s John Clark verified. CBS SportsNet’s Aditi Kinkhabwala initially documented the news.
Weidl will provide as the assistant typical supervisor less than Omar Khan, who is remaining employed as the basic manger in Pittsburgh, ESPN’s Adam Schefter documented. Khan will replace longtime Pittsburgh normal supervisor Kevin Colbert, who stepped down just after the 2022 draft.
Weidl was in competition for the standard manager occupation and even created the record of finalists, interviewing twice. As a substitute of receiving the major occupation, he has acknowledged the assistant GM posture, making him the most current entrance office environment govt to go away this offseason.
As a recap, here’s who the Eagles have misplaced in the past several months:
- Andy Weidl (VP of participant personnel)
- Catherine Raîche (VP of football operations)
- Tom Donahoe (senior football advisor)
- Brandon Brown (director of participant staff)
- Ian Cunningham (director of participant personnel)
And the hemorrhaging of entrance office environment expertise dates back again a few years to when they misplaced Joe Douglas, Andrew Berry and some others.
Eagles standard supervisor Howie Roseman tackled all this soon after the conclusion of the 2022 draft.
“Well, yeah, you discuss about some of the items right here that have took place due to the fact the end of the 2019 draft,” Roseman mentioned just after the 2022 draft finished. “We’ve misplaced a whole lot of seriously excellent individuals and we however have a lot of truly very good folks.
“Obviously, since of that, we are going to have to keep on to make additions and proceed to fortify that group. I feel we have a good course of action for that. I feel we’re in a condition in which we want to continue on to mature expertise in the making. We have great persons in the developing and, just like our soccer group, we are constantly looking to include superior people, and I think you are only as good as your people today. We have really great people today and obviously Andy is a single of them.”
The Eagles have been resistant to hand out an assistant typical supervisor title and they’ve dropped some proficient people today for the reason that of it. The Eagles are in the approach of restructuring their entrance business this offseason and it will probable have a distinct structure than the a person they experienced this previous year.

Weidl was initially hired by the Eagles in 2016 as their assistant director of participant staff. In 2019, when Joe Douglas still left for the Jets GM occupation, the Eagles promoted Weidl to the director of player personnel and sooner or later extra a VP title next to his name. The Eagles have had promising drafts the past two decades and Weidl was seemingly a major part of that.
“You know what, we often converse about, ‘Be where by your feet are. Be where your feet are and target on the activity at hand.’ And which is what we did,” Weidl mentioned just following the 2022 draft finished.
“I imagine our team as a complete, coaches, scouts, everybody, really locked in on this approach, and I think you observed the benefits the final a few times in the draft course that we brought in. So actually fortuitous to be part of it and appreciate what we do, what we’re undertaking and where we’re heading.”
Possibly, though, the producing was on the wall previously this offseason when the Eagles fired director of scouting functions Casey Weidl, the more youthful brother of Andy. Casey Weidl’s placement is predicted to be stuffed by an interior applicant.
Andy Weidl, a Pittsburgh indigenous, is heading property for this new occupation chance. The Eagles are still left in their ongoing quest to rebuild their entrance business office.
