Todd Bowles, the Eagles' new secondary coach, has been a "hot" name around the league for the last few years. Part of the reason for that is the connection Bowles tends to form with his players. One of those players who has been coached by Bowles believes Bowles is a perfect fit for the Eagles.
"With the kind of talent they already have there, he'll make them a better secondary, and they'll have a really successful team next year," Anthony Henry, who played under Bowles with the Dallas Cowboys and Cleveland Browns, told Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News.
Bowen writes that Henry called Bowles' coaching style "laid-back enough that players felt free to come in and talk to him about coverages they felt had worked well for them in the past, that he should consider." Henry also described Bowles to Bowen as "fiery" if a plan wasn't being executed properly.
"Guys feel comfortable with their roles and the scheme," Henry told Bowen.
