Dino Vasso enters his first season with the Eagles in 2016 and will serve as the team’s defensive quality control/assistant secondary coach after spending the previous three seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs as a coaching assistant.

While assisting the entire coaching staff during his time in Kansas City, Vasso primarily worked with the secondary, serving under defensive backs coach Emmitt Thomas and defensive assistant/secondary coach Al Harris.

Prior to his time in Kansas City, Vasso spent the 2012 season as a defensive graduate assistant for the University of Missouri and as an offensive intern for Temple University in 2011.

A four-year defensive back at the University of New Hampshire (2006-10), Vasso started 51 consecutive games and earned first-team AFCA All-American honors as a senior.

A native of Crum Lynne, PA, Vasso lettered in football, basketball and track at Ridley High School in Folsom, PA.
