A Jeff Stoutland post that seems to reveal his coaching future originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia
It appears at least one assistant coach from Nick Sirianni’s staff isn’t going anywhere.
One very important assistant coach.
The Eagles have cut ties with both coordinators and several other assistant coaches from Nick Sirianni’s coaching staff, including quarterbacks coach Alex Tanney, secondary coach D.K. McDonald and linebackers coach D.J. Eliot, with news of additional departures anticipated in the coming days.

Jeff Stoutland, the Eagles’ legendary offensive line coach, tweeted out a video Tuesday afternoon that sure seemed to indicate he’ll be part of the Eagles’ coaching staff in 2024.
“Coach Stout here,” he said. “I hear we have a game in Brazil. First game of the season, 2024 kickoff. Just a shoutout to all those fans in Brazil, in São Paulo. Nos Vemos em breve. Stout out.”

Stoutland was originally hired here in 2013 by Chip Kelly and was retained by both Doug Pederson and Sirianni.
