Head coach Andy Reid commented on the changes to his coaching staff, namely the hiring of new special teams coordinator Bobby April and the departure of special teams coordinator Ted Daisher, strength and conditioning coach Mike Wolf and assistant strength and conditioning coach Jay Merlino.
"Bobby April has proven himself as one of the top special teams coaches in this league," Reid said. "I have spoken with many coaches and players who have worked with and played under Bobby directly and they have had nothing but the highest regard for him in terms as a coach and as a person. We look forward to adding him to our coaching staff and building upon the excellent job our special teams did last year."
"We appreciate the efforts and contributions of those three men. I have the highest regard for Ted as a special teams coach and as a person. He's an excellent football coach and the numbers and production on the field this past year proved that. We just decided to go in another direction. I have no doubt Ted will land on his feet with another NFL team and do a great job. As far as Mike Wolf, he has been nothing but a professional and diligent strength coach for this franchise over the past 15 seasons. He has been a big part in the success the Eagles have had in recent years. We appreciate all the work he and Jay Merlino put in with our players to help them maximize their efforts on the field."
