Get to know Eagles senior offensive assistant Rich Scangarello

The Eagles officially named Rich Scangarello as the team's senior offensive assistant on February 6. Here is a snapshot of his career:

Scangarello spent the 2019 season as the offensive coordinator and play-caller for the Denver Broncos. Drew Lock finished his first year in the league with a 4-1 record to match John Elway for the most wins by a rookie quarterback in franchise history.

The Broncos' 2019 rookie class played the sixth-most snaps in the NFL. In addition to Lock's success, tight end Noah Fant had the most catches (40) and receiving yards (562) by a first-year tight end in team history.

Scangarello is entering his sixth season as a coach in the NFL after 17 years at the collegiate level. He served as an offensive coordinator, passing game coordinator, or quarterbacks coach in 14 of those 17 seasons.

Scangarello worked under 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco and in Atlanta. As the quarterbacks coach for the 49ers from 2017-18, Jimmy Garoppolo started eight of nine games and led the team to a 6-2 record during that span. He completed 65 percent of his pass attempts for 2,278 yards and 12 touchdowns.

A native of Roseville, California, Scangarello began coaching in 1996 at his alma mater, Oakmont High School, after earning a degree in business administration from Sacramento State University. He was born on April 15, 1972.

Scangarello went on to work as a grad assistant at Idaho in 2000 before becoming the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Carleton College. Scangarello returned to Idaho to serve as the quarterbacks coach from 2002-03 before he began a five-year tenure at UC-Davis, first working as the team's passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach from 2004-07 and then as the co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach in 2008.

In addition to his early college coaching positions, Scangarello has also coached at Millsaps College (2010-11), Northern Arizona University (2012-14), and Wagner College (2016).
