The other moves include hiring:
- DL coach Brian Baker
- Pass game specialist Kevin Patullo
- Assistant to the head coach Tyler Boyles
- Offensive QC coach Parks Frazier
Groh, 48, began his coaching career with the Jets as an assistant back in 2000. He spent a number of years at Virginia before holding positions at Alabama and Louisville.
The Bears hired Groh as their WRs coach in 2013. After one with the Rams, Groh joined the Eagles as their WRs coach for the 2017 season before being promoted to offensive coordinator in 2018.
Philadelphia elected to part ways with Groh and WR coach Carson Walch after both coaches drew criticism due to their units struggling through 2019.
In 2019, the Eagles ranked No. 14 in total yards, No. 12 in total points, No. 11 in rushing yards and No. 11 in passing yards.
