The Philadelphia Eagles have reportedly hired Dave Fipp to their coaching staff.
The team is not commenting on any potential coaching hiring. However, Fipp is at the Senior Bowl this week wearing Eagles gear, leading to the assumption that he will be joining the staff.
Even Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin has told Philadelphia media that Fipp has left his coaching staff to join the Eagles coaching staff. He is expected to be the new special teams coach.
Since John Harbaugh left to take the Baltimore Ravens head coaching job in 2007, the Eagles have had a revolving door as special teams coach. Rory Segrest, Ted Daisher, and Bobby April have each held the position, before Fipp’s appointment.
He was the Dolphins assistant special teams coach. He has also worked in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers, as their assistant special teams coach from 2008 through 2010. These are his only NFL jobs thus far.
He was previously a defensive coordinator in the college ranks from 2002 through 2007. He was the Cal Poly defensive coordinator in 2002 and 2003, before leaving to take the University of Nebraska co-defensive coordinator role in 2004.
He was the San Jose State co-defensive coordinator in 2005 and 2006, before being promoted to defensive coordinator in 2007.
He was also the Cal Poly secondary coach in 2001. He was a graduate assistant at the University of Arizona in 2000. And worked in 1998 and 1999 at Holy Cross as their special teams coordinator and secondary coach.
