MOBILE, Ala. - The Eagles have hired Dave Fipp to be their next special teams coordinator, an NFL source said.
The Eagles have not confirmed coaching hires since Chip Kelly was named head coach last week. They intend to announce the new additions once Kelly finalizes his staff. Kelly has most of his coaches in place, according to various reports, but still needs to hire a defensive coordinator and an offensive line coach.
There is growing speculation that the Eagles are waiting until after the Super Bowl to hire a defensive coordinator. Of the San Francisco 49ers staff, defensive backs coach Ed Donatell and defensive line coach Jim Tomsula would seem to be the most likely candidates.
