Eagles hire Jim Washburn for staff
PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Eagles have hired longtime Titans assistant Jim Washburn to be their defensive line coach.
Washburn spent 12 seasons as the defensive line coach with Tennessee. He replaces Rory Segrest, who was fired last week along with defensive coordinator Sean McDermott.
Washburn had five players earn 10 trips to the Pro Bowl during his tenure with the Titans. Over the last 12 years, the Titans ranked seventh in the NFL in sacks (474), and fifth against the run.
