The Eagles have hired Browns LB coach Billy Davis as their defensive coordinator.
After a long search for an aggressive proponent of the 3-4, the Eagles finally found their man. Prior to his two-year stint in Cleveland, Davis coordinated the Cardinals' defense without much success from 2009-2010 and held the same position in San Francisco from 2005-06 before getting ousted. He's been in the NFL as a defensive assistant since 1992, coaching the 3-4 scheme almost exclusively. In Philly, Davis will be charged with turning around a defense that ranked 30th in points allowed and tied for dead last in turnovers forced last season. It's not the splashy defensive hire many expected when offensive guru Chip Kelly landed the head-coaching gig.
I know they were in the market for a 3-4 guy as well.
