Assistant Linebackers


Tyler Scudder was named the Philadelphia Eagles' assistant linebackers coach during the 2023 offseason. Overall, he enters his third year with the organization after originally joining the coaching staff in 2021.

As a defensive assistant in 2022, when the club made an appearance in Super Bowl LVII following its 14-3 campaign, Scudder contributed to a unit that posted the third-most sacks (70, tied) in NFL history, behind the 1984 Bears (72) and 1989 Vikings (71). He also helped Philadelphia rank first in passing defense (179.8 ypg), second in total defense (301.5 ypg), third in opponent passer rating (81.6) and fourth in takeaways (27, tied).

In his first year with the Eagles, Scudder supported a staff that guided the team to a 9-8 record and playoff berth, producing numerous franchise records and top-10 NFL rankings in all three phases along the way.

Prior to Philadelphia, Scudder served as a senior defensive quality control coach at Iowa State (2018-20). He helped coach the Cyclones to three consecutive bowl games, in addition to top-three Big 12 rankings in scoring defense in 2018 (22.9 ppg, first), 2019 (25.9 ppg, third) and 2020 (21.4 ppg, second). Iowa State also ranked second in the Big 12 in opponent yards per game during the 2018 (349.2 ypg) and 2020 (340.4 ypg) campaigns.

Before his stint with the Cyclones, Scudder coached the linebackers at Duquesne from 2014-17 and added responsibilities as a co-defensive coordinator beginning in 2015. With his assistance, the Dukes led the Northeast Conference in scoring defense (19.2 ppg) and rushing defense (135.8 ypg) in 2015 and produced the 10th-ranked total defense (314.1 ypg) in the FCS during the 2016 season. One of Scudder's star players was Christian Kuntz, the NEC's all-time sacks leader (30.5) and a three-time FCS All-American.

In 2013, Scudder was the director of player personnel at Western Michigan, where he helped the Broncos assemble the No. 1 recruiting class in Mid-American Conference history, according to Rivals.

Scudder mentored the cornerbacks and linebackers and assisted with recruiting at Indiana University of Pennsylvania from 2010-12. The Crimson Hawks ranked first among all NCAA Division II programs in scoring defense (12.5 ppg) and total defense (257.9 ypg) during the 2012 season.

Scudder began his coaching career as the wide receivers/special teams coach at Plymouth State (NH) in 2009.

A native of Gettysburg, PA, Scudder attended West Virginia, where he earned a bachelor's degree in public relations.

He and his wife, Ashley, have three sons: Owen, Henry, and Abe.
