A veteran coach with more than two decades of experience in the professional and collegiate ranks, Jemal Singleton enters his second season as the Philadelphia Eagles' running backs/assistant head coach.
In his first year with the Eagles in 2021, Philadelphia ranked first in the NFL with franchise records in rushing yards (2,715), rushing touchdowns (25) and rushing first downs (163). Under Singleton's tutelage, Miles Sanders produced the third-highest rushing average (career-high 5.5) among NFL running backs (min. 125 attempts), while Boston Scott notched a career-high seven rushing touchdowns. Furthermore, Kenneth Gainwell tied for the most rushing touchdowns (five) by a rookie in Eagles history.
Prior to joining the Eagles, Singleton spent the 2019-20 seasons as the Cincinnati Bengals' running backs coach. In 2020, he helped the team navigate a season-ending injury to Joe Mixon, who ranked seventh in the NFL in rushing yards (428) through six games, as Cincinnati's running backs totaled 1,891 scrimmage yards for the year. Singleton guided Mixon to 1,137 rushing yards in 2019, including 817 yards over the final eight weeks (second-most in the NFL in that span). The Bengals' ground game, led by Singleton, played a major part in the offense's resurgence, averaging 130.1 rushing yards per game during the second half of the season. CLICK HERE FOR FULL BIO
