The Eagles have hired former Cleveland Browns coach Pat Shurmur, an NFL source said Sunday. Shurmur is expected to be named offensive coordinator, but an exact title had yet to be determined. New Eagles coach Chip Kelly likely will handle the offensive play-calling next season. He became one of the NFL's highest-paid coaches by signing a five-year contract worth $32.5 million with the Birds last week, ESPN reported. But he said that he was looking for a coordinator to help in the passing game.

PAT SHURMUR feels most comfortable when he's uncomfortable. It is no surprise, then, that he smiles even as he squirms when confronted with the million-dollar question: What does he DO, exactly? Shurmur is the offensive coordinator of an offensive system for which he usually gets no credit - neither for its conception, nor its implementation, nor its execution on game day. Will this perception handicap Shurmur the next time he is considered for a head-coaching job? Hardly.

Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, known to quip more than his predecessor, Andy Reid, wasn't exactly forthright. But he was amusing when talking about how the team's play-calling duties will work between him and new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. "I will call all the good plays, and Pat will call the bad ones," Kelly said on Monday during a news conference to introduce the new coaching staff. Shurmur was more revealing. "Things haven't been totally talked about [between us]

MOBILE, Ala. - The Eagles have yet to confirm any of their assistant coaching hires, including the addition of Pat Shurmur as offensive coordinator. But Shurmur walked around Senior Bowl practice Monday with a credential that read "Eagles" under his name. That was about as much confirmation as one would need. Of more importance is how the former Cleveland Browns head coach will jell with new Eagles head coach Chip Kelly. On the surface, they are different. Kelly, who will likely call the plays on offense, is an out-of-the-box-thinking proponent of the spread offense.

In two of Pat Shurmur's last three seasons coaching in the NFL, his teams have started a rookie quarterback. In the other year, he started a second-year quarterback. It's hard to find an NFL coach with more recent experience coaching young quarterbacks than Shurmur, the Eagles' new offensive coordinator. An Eagles tight ends coach when Donovan McNabb was a rookie in 1999 and the quarterbacks coach when Kevin Kolb was drafted in 2007, Shurmur watched McNabb become the starter as a rookie and Kolb wait his turn.

It was halftime at the RCA Dome on Nov. 26, and things weren't going well for the Eagles. Having lost starting quarterback Donovan McNabb for the season the week before, the Eagles were in the midst of being blown out by the Indianapolis Colts. Inside the locker room, quarterbacks coach Pat Shurmur noticed he had a voice-mail message from a number in East Lansing, Mich. The message was a potentially life-changing one for Shurmur, who was a candidate for the head coaching job at Michigan State, his alma mater.

Pat Shurmur recalls the countless pass-and-catch sessions in the backyard, watching his son make surprisingly crisp and accurate throws. The youngster, when it came to organized play, showed more natural ability on offense. "He's never been a good tackler," his father said with a laugh. Jon Runyan remembers the Tuesday afternoons, while at home and recovering from another exhausting NFL game, when he would test his namesake's hand-eye coordination. "I would have him run across the room and wing the ball at him," he said.

There was no official word from St. Louis yesterday about the possibility of Eagles quarterbacks coach Pat Shurmur joining new Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo, but a league source said two NFL teams have asked permission to speak with Shurmur about becoming their offensive coordinator. Shurmur, 43, is an original member of Andy Reid's staff. He spent 3 years coaching tight ends and now has been the quarterbacks coach for seven seasons. Spagnuolo worked with Shurmur the first eight of those seasons, before becoming the Giants' defensive coordinator and winning last season's Super Bowl.

There is no longer a mystery about how Mark Sanchez will function as the Eagles' starting quarterback. He threw for 332 yards and two touchdowns without a turnover Monday in a 45-21 rout of the Carolina Panthers. He can improve his efficiency, and the Eagles must do better on third-down conversions, but Sanchez appears to be a quick study in coach Chip Kelly's offense. Now that opposing coordinators have seen him in the system, Sanchez expects defensive looks to evolve, beginning Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.

LA SALLE HIGH senior quarterback Kyle Shurmur was one of 45 players chosen from across the nation to play in the 2015 Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl.

It's dangerous to read too much into what happens in the NFL during the opening week. In some ways, it's an extension of the preseason, except, of course, it counts in the standings. The starters are going the distance for the first time, so that's an adjustment. The opponents are finally showing off the offensive and defensive schemes they hid during the preseason, so that must be taken into consideration, too. "You know you've got to be slow to judge what happens in Week 1," Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said.

A COLLEGE coach suggested Cody Parkey log his kicks. So Parkey did that, then expanded on the idea, making it into a kind of kicking journal, from practices and games. "Along with your makes, you can learn off what you miss, as well," Parkey said yesterday. Parkey and the Eagles are preparing to visit Parkey's former team, the Indianapolis Colts. (At 22, the rookie barely looks old enough to have a former razor, let alone a former team, but he was in camp with Indianapolis until he was traded here Aug. 21)

Josh Huff expected something different. The rookie receiver the Eagles selected in the third round of this year's draft figured he would arrive in Philadelphia and quickly assimilate Chip Kelly's offensive system. He had good reason to believe it, too. Huff had played for Kelly at the University of Oregon. He was Kelly's leading receiver as a junior in 2012 and ran the same system in 2013 under coach Mark Helfrich when he was again the Ducks' top pass catcher. All Huff had to do was show up at the NovaCare Complex and start running those plays that made him a star at Oregon.

Bill Davis might have been Chip Kelly's second choice as the Eagles' defensive coordinator. Might have even been his third. It really does not matter now because Davis is the defensive coordinator and has gained the trust of his offensive-minded boss. How often does Kelly interfere with Davis' defensive game plan? "Chip lets us go," Davis said after a recent practice at the NovaCare Complex. "He's not in any of our meetings. He's in the offensive meetings. It's ours defensively to do what we want.

There are all types of wide receivers. Tall ones. Short ones. Fast ones. Not as fast ones. Strong ones. Not as strong ones. Receivers with great hands. Who run great routes. Who have great body control. Most are some combination of the above. Asked to name what kind of receiver would benefit most from the NFL-mandated emphasis on illegal contact downfield, the Eagles varied in their answers. Some said the restrictions on pass defenders would equally aid all receivers. But if a specific sort was cited, aside from the ideal and rare of "big and fast, it was quicker receivers who aren't as physical.
