The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to a contract extension with offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland, according to a report from ESPN. This is great news, as Stoutland is widely regarded as the offensive line coach in football.
Stoutland has been the Eagles offensive line coach since the 2013 season. He had the title of “run game coordinator” added to his duties in 2018.
The Eagles offensive line is regarded as the best in football. C Jason Kelce, LG Landon Dickerson, and RT Lane Johnson were all named to the Pro Bowl for this season, while LT Jordan Mailata and RG Isaac Seumalo were named Pro Bowl alternates.
Jason Kelce and Lane Johnson were also awarded First-Team All-Pro honors. All five Eagles offensive line starters were originally drafted by the Eagles, with only Kelce having been drafted prior to Stoutland’s arrival.
According to the report from ESPN, Stoutland received interest from other teams around the league for offensive coordinator positions.
The Eagles have their most important assistant coach under contract for the future.
