Report: Jeff Stoutland To Coach O-Line

Stoutland just completed his second year at Alabama, helping the Crimson Tide win back-to-back BCS National Championships. In his two seasons under head coach Nick Saban, Stoutland's line produced some of the best linemen in college football.

In 2011, his unit allowed the second-fewest sacks in the SEC. Left tackle Barrett Jones and center William Vlachos were both named first team All-SEC. That year, Jones won the Outland Award, given to the best interior lineman in football. In 2012, Jones and guard Chance Warmack earned first team All-SEC honors. Jones switched to center but still found great success, winning the Rimington Trophy, given to the best center in the nation.

From 2007-2010, Stoutland served as the offensive line coach at the University of Miami and was the interim head coach for one game in 2010 after the firing of then-head coach Randy Shannon. At Miami, Stoutland helped several players reach the NFL, including former Philadelphia Eagles draft pick Brandon Washington and Ravens lineman Orlando Franklin.

Stoutland began his coaching career at his alma mater of Southern Connecticut as the inside linebackers coach in 1984. He spent the next several years working his way up through the college ranks, including three seasons as Syracuse's offensive line coach. For two of those years he coached the unit protecting future Philadelphia Eagles franchise quarterback Donovan McNabb.

On Thursday, the Eagles also reportedly added former Browns linebacker coach Bill Davis to the staff as defensive coordinator.
