Jeremiah Washburn, who has more than two decades of experience as an NFL coach and scout, enters his fifth year with the Philadelphia Eagles and second as the team's defensive ends/outside linebackers coach.
During the Eagles' 14-3 campaign that resulted in a Super Bowl LVII appearance in 2022, Washburn oversaw a group of edge rushers that helped engineer the third-most sacks (70, tied) in NFL history, trailing only the 1984 Bears (72) and 1989 Vikings (71). Philadelphia also became the first team to have four different players record double-digit sacks in the same year.
Linebacker Haason Reddick received his first Associated Press All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors after finishing second in the league with a career-high 16.0 sacks (including a league-best five strip sacks), which marekd the third-most ever by a player in their first year with a team, behind Shaquil Barrett with Tampa Bay in 2019 (19.5) and Bryce Paup with Buffalo in 1995 (17.5). In addition, defensive end Brandon Graham (career-high 11.0) became the second NFL player to log 10-plus sacks for the first time at age 34-or-older, joining Ed 'Too Tall' Jones in 1985 (13.0). Defensive end Josh Sweat also had a career-high 11.0 sacks and led the team with 15 tackles for loss.
From 2020-21, Washburn served as the Eagles' senior defensive assistant. In 2021, he supported a defense that allowed the ninth-fewest rushing yards per game (107.9) and 10th-fewest total yards per game (328.8). Washburn also played a key role in Sweat and defensive tackle Javon Hargrave earning their first Pro Bowls after tying for the team lead in sacks (7.5).
During the 2020 season, Washburn supported a unit that recorded the third-most sacks (49) in the league. Furthermore, he assisted Graham and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox to Pro Bowl recognition.
Washburn originally joined Philadelphia's staff as an advanced projects coordinator during the 2019 offseason.
