The addition of Davis will hopefully turn around a defense that was absolutely putrid last season. The only thing that might have been worse than the defense was the offensive line. It appears that Kelly has found the man to turn around the offensive line and he also comes from the college ranks. According to FootballScoop.com, Alabama Crimson Tide offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland will become the Eagles new offensive line coach.
Stoutland has spent the last two seasons as the Alabama offensive line coach. He has helped develop Garrett Jones, who was the 2011 Outland Award Winner (best interior lineman) and 2012 Rimington Award (best center), and guard Chance Warmack, who is widely suspected to be the best offensive guard to come out of college in years.
Prior to Alabama, he was the offensive line coach at Miami (2007-10) and Michigan State (2000-06). He has ties to the Eagles organization as he was the offensive line coach at Syracuse from 1997-99. He coaches the men who blocked for former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb while he was still in college.
