The Eagles have lost assistant coach Brian Stewart to the University of Houston (or Kevin Kolb University) as I like to call it. He will be filling the defensive coordinator position there.
Stewart only spent one year in Philadelphia but has coached at the professional level with the Cowboys, Texans, and Chargers as well as bouncing around a few college teams as well.
Andy Reid made the following comments about Stewart’s departure:
“We thank Brian for the job he did this past year in Philadelphia. He’s a good football coach and he’s well deserving of this new opportunity. He will bring a great deal of coaching experience to the already strong football staff at the University of Houston. We wish Brian and his family all the best.”
Stewart said he left the organization because he’d like to be a head coach someday and he thinks being a successful coordinator at a program like the University of Houston is a step in the right direction.
