A day before minicamp begins, the Eagles assistant coaches met with reporters at the NovaCare Complex to discuss the current roster.
The Philadelphia Eagles have hired Ian Cunningham as the team's director of college scouting, T.J. McCreight as a player personnel executive, Brandon Brown as the club's assistant director of pro scouting, and Matt Holland as a pro scout. Additionally, Trey Brown has been named player personnel executive college/pro, Jim Ward was named the team's Midwest area scout, and Katie David was named football operations coordinator.
"We are extremely excited about our staff," said vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas. "The group's collective passion, character, football knowledge, and experienced eye for talent are great assets to the organization and the personnel department."
Cunningham comes to Philadelphia after spending the last nine seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. In Baltimore, Cunningham worked closely with Douglas and Eagles assistant director of player personnel Andy Weidl. He joined the Ravens as a player personal assistant in 2008 and was promoted to Southeast area scout in 2013. In his final four seasons with the Ravens, Cunningham was primarily responsible for scouting schools in the Southeastern Conference and Atlantic Coast Conference.
McCreight, who brings 21 years of NFL experience to the Eagles' scouting department, served as director of college scouting for the Indianapolis Colts from 2012-16. He began his NFL career in 1997 as an area scout for the Baltimore Ravens and went on to spend eight years with the club. During his time in Baltimore, McCreight and Douglas worked together for five seasons (2000-04). In 2005, McCreight was hired by the Cleveland Browns as assistant director of player personnel and was promoted to director of player personnel in 2007. Prior to joining the Colts' front office, McCreight worked as director of pro personnel for the Arizona Cardinals from 2009-11.
Brown spent the last two seasons with the Colts and previously worked at Boston College for two seasons as the school's recruiting specialist (2013) and assistant director of player personnel (2014). He joined the NFL ranks as a scouting assistant with the Colts in 2015 and was promoted to advance scout in just his second season with the club.
Prior to joining the Eagles, Holland worked in the personnel departments of the Cleveland Browns (2014-16), Washington Redskins (2012-14), and Miami Dolphins (2006-07).
Ward, the team's newly named Midwest area scout, previously served as a consultant for the Eagles' personnel department and most recently focused his efforts on evaluating the Mid-American Conference and defensive line prospects in the draft.
