Jeff Stoutland Agrees to Contract Extension, Foregoes Possible Promotion to Join Other Teams

It is no longer a debate that Jeff Stoutland is the best offensive line coach in the NFL; he might even be the best assistant coach in the entire NFL.

Stoutland reportedly had teams interested in promoting him to offensive coordinator, but he has decided to stay in Philadelphia and agreed to a contract extension.

The Eagles have had six different offensive linemen make a Pro Bowl team under current offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland, who joined the team under Chip Kelly in 2013. Those six – Jason Peters, Jason Kelce, Evan Mathis, Lane Johnson, Brandon Brooks, and Landon Dickerson – have now made a total of 19 Pro Bowls. (From 1960 through 2012 – the 53-year period before Stoutland joined the coaching staff - the Eagles had only 10 offensive linemen make 21 total Pro Bowls).


With the future at the OL uncertain with Jason Kelce (35 years old) and Lane Johnson (32 years old) likely pondering retirement and Isaac Seumalo a free agent this spring, the Eagles will be in good hands with Stoutland coaching up the younger linemen that will be incoming.
