Duce Staley
Running Backs Coach

Biography

One of the most popular and toughest players to ever suit up in an Eagles uniform, Duce Staley enters his sixth season in Philadelphia and fourth as the team’s running backs coach.

Working with RBs DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews in 2015, Staley helped the duo become the first pair of Eagles teammates to record six-or-more rushing scores in a season since 2003. Additionally, Mathews ranked fourth in the NFL in yards per carry (5.08).

Under Staley’s direction in 2014, RB LeSean McCoy finished third in the league in rushing with 1,319 yards and second in rushing attempts with 312, en route to his second consecutive Pro Bowl berth.

In his first season coaching the team’s running backs in 2013, Staley was part of an offense that helped set franchise records in points (442 - broken in 2014), total net yards (6,676), touchdowns (53 - broken in 2014), passing yards (4,406 - broken in 2014) and fewest turnovers (19). With assistance from Staley, McCoy earned first-team All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors for the second time in his career after leading the NFL in rushing yards (1,607) and scrimmage yards (2,146), while setting Eagles single-season records in both categories. In addition, McCoy became the first Eagle since Steve Van Buren in 1947 to lead the league in both rushing and yards from scrimmage.

A multi-talented running back for the Eagles (1997-2003) and Pittsburgh Steelers (2004-06), Staley gained 5,785 yards during his career, including  4,807 with the Eagles (fifth most in team history). He also ranks sixth in the Eagles record book with 7,305 total yards from scrimmage and 16th with 275 receptions. He was voted by his teammates as the Eagles offensive MVP three times (1998, 1999 and 2002) and won a Super Bowl with the Steelers in 2005.
