The Philadelphia Eagles have reportedly promoted running backs coach Duce Staley to assistant head coach, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.

Staley will also continue to coach running backs, according to the report.

According to 247Sports, the assistant interviewed for the Eagles’ offensive coordinator position on Monday, which ultimately went to wide receivers coach Mike Groh.

Last week, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Philadelphia planned to promote Groh and Staley to bigger positions, with both being considered for the offensive coordinator position.

Staley joined the Eagles’ staff as a special teams quality control coach in 2011 and was promoted to running backs coach in 2013.

He also played for the Eagles from 1997-2003 and ranks fifth in franchise history with 4,807 career rushing yards.
