Aaron Moorehead

Wide Receivers Coach


Aaron Moorehead enters his fourth season as the Philadelphia Eagles' wide receivers coach after originally joining the team in 2020.

In 2022, Moorehead oversaw the record-breaking performances of A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, who became the first 1,000-yard receiving duo in franchise history and each played pivotal roles in the Eagles advancing to Super Bowl LVII. In his first year in Philadelphia, Brown finished fourth in the league with a career-high 1,496 receiving yards, breaking a 38-year team record. Brown added a career-high-tying 11 touchdowns, which tied for the second-most among NFL wideouts. Smith also ranked eighth at his position with a career-high 1,191 receiving yards on 95 catches, setting an Eagles record for the most receptions ever by a wide receiver.

During the 2021 season, Moorehead guided Smith to a franchise rookie record in receiving yards (916), in addition to team highs in receptions (64) and receiving touchdowns (five). Quez Watkins also logged a team-high 15.0 receiving average, which ranked eighth among wide receivers.

Prior to the Eagles, Moorehead spent the 2018-19 seasons as Vanderbilt's wide receivers coach. In 2018, he helped Kalija Lipscomb (undrafted free agent by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2020) total 87 receptions for 916 yards, both of which are among the top figures in school history.

Moorehead participated in the NFL's Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship with the Indianapolis Colts during the 2019 offseason, when Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni was a member of the Colts' staff.

Before his stint at Vanderbilt, Moorehead tutored the wide receivers at Texas A&M from 2015-17. In 2016, he directed a group led by Christian Kirk and Josh Reynolds, who combined for 144 receptions, 1,967 yards and 21 touchdowns. Kirk earned All-SEC honors with a career-high 83 catches for 928 yards, while Reynolds tallied 1,039 yards on 61 receptions.
