The current Super Bowl champion, the Philadelphia Eagles, has already lost his second most important assistant coach.
In addition to Offensive Coordinator Reich, quarterback coach John DeFilippo also left Philadelphia to become head coach of the Minnesota Vikings.
Reich himself played 14 years in the NFL, mostly as a quarterback backup and started his coaching career in Indianapolis in 2006. At the Colts he trained the wide receivers and quarterbacks until 2012.
Subsequently, he held positions with the Arizona Cardinals and San Diego Chargers before Reich became Eagles’ offensive coordinator in 2016.
His greatest triumph is the surprising Super Bowl victory in 2018 with Philadelphia against the Patriots.
