The Eagles announced on Thursday they have hired Ed Marynowitz as the team's new Vice President of Player Personnel. He was signed to a three-year deal. The team does not technically have a general manager but this is as close it will get with Marynowitz reporting to head coach Chip Kelly.
Marynowitz, 30, is a native of Media, Pa and spent two years as the quarterback for La Salle University before finishing his college career at the University of Central Florida. He graduated from Central Florida in 2006 and received his MBA from UCF in 2007 before earning a second masters is sports business management in 2008. He worked for the University of Alabama as the director of player personnel from 2008-11 before joining the Eagles.
Marynowitz was excited to accept the position (via PhiladelphiaEagles.com).
“I’m excited and appreciative about the opportunity Mr. Lurie, Chip Kelly and the Eagles organization have given me. We intend to build a collaborative and competitive work environment with our coaches, one built upon trust and respect with a focus on winning. I have had a great experience working with Chip over the last two years and the opportunity to work with him in this new capacity is one I look forward to. Our goal as a personnel department will be to develop a detailed process to maximize each segment of the scouting calendar in order to support and execute Chip’s vision.”
With the search for the Vice President of Player Personnel over, the focus is on the offseason and NFL Draft.
