Philadelphia Eagles: Sources tell us Alabama offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland will be the new offensive line coach for the Eagles.
Since 1999, the premier source for coaching job information. A resource for coaches and athletic directors.
Hell of a lot better choice than their DC pickup.
It looks that way. We have a couple of people saying this is going to happen but it's not official by any means.
Kinda scummy to announce right after NSD
meh, coach pendry was doing a lot of the OL coaching/scouting behind the scenes anyway. Hopefully Pendry just steps back on the field and out of the box.

I do as well, but I'm not sure Stoutland was huge in any of our pickups this year.
Our recruits stay because of Saban for the most part. He'll get another top notch pickup. Kelly needs to start worrying about going into the college ranks for ALL of his pickups. He's going to need some people with a lot of NFL years under their belts.
I'd prefer Tim Davis.
who is tim davis?
UF O-line coach. Friend or even Samuels would be cool with me off the top of my head. CS would completely neutralize (probably pass given product to sell) Craig in Mobile/South AL recruiting, and he'll be a great coach, imo.
Correct. I thought Davis was still at Utah so I doubt he leaves Florida even if we wanted him.
Samuels would be intriguing but not sure he's ready yet from a coaching standpoint.
Steve Marshall would be another intriguing name.

One of my buddies is a friend of Samuels, and he completely agrees with what you've said. Also told me that all Samuels wants to do is coach.
I would love to see Samuels coaching our OL. Is he actually an option and what amount of coaching has he done?
Actually that question should have gone to another Bama fan. I haven't kept up much with him since he retired from the NFL. Lord knows that he would know what he's talking about.
He's only been out of the league what two years? I know he still has homes in NoVa. Chris and his wife just had a ginormous baby boy. I asked my friend what Chris was up to now besides the new baby and that is when he told me that Chris just wants to coach.
I would think he would need to coach at a smaller school before he can coach at a school like bama. It's very different being a great player compared to a great coach.
I would agree. I'm sure Saban would let him be an interim coach for him a couple of years though to see what he's made of. Would also let him learn from the best to see what it takes and also get him into the recruiting phase of things. He can't come right out of the league and be an OL coach at a high level D1 school though without any coaching experience at all. I would actually say that he would need about 4-5 years minimum to just get used to the rigors of the schedule.
There's just a lot that goes on in coaching compared to playing. Does Saban even know Samuels personally? I mean did he ever coach him in the pros or anything?
I don't think that there is any other connection other than Samuels playing for Bama and Saban now coaching us. They may have met at university functions but I have no clue.
Isn't Samuels a GA for us right now?
I thought so, but I wasn't positive.
Samuels indicated during his retirement press conference with the Washington Redskins that intended to continue his career in football and become a coach. In 2010, he participated in the NFL's Minority Coaching Fellowship as an assistant to the Redskins' offensive line coach Chris Foerster. In February 2011, Samuels volunteered as the offensive coordinator at Blount High School in Prichard, Alabama. At Blount, he helped lead the Leopards to an overall record of 10–2 and an appearance in the Alabama High School Athletic Association playoffs. After only one season at Blount, in January 2012 Samuels returned to the University of Alabama to serve as a student assistant coach for Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban. At Alabama, he will serve as an assistant offensive line coach in addition to working to complete his degree in physical education.
