The Eagles have made several changes to the scouting department, the team announced today.
Howie Roseman has added Michael Davis as Midwest area scout; Trey Brown as West Coast area scout; and Louis Clark as pro scout.
In addition, the following three scouts were promoted:
* Ed Marynowitz is the new assistant director of player personnel. He spent his first year with the Eagles as assistant director of pro scouting.
* Alan Wolking is the new Southeast area scout. He had been the Midwest area scout.
* And Mike Bradway is the new Eastern regional scout. He had been the Northeast college scout.
“We’re very fortunate to have a strong scouting staff and these three hires are great additions to our team,” Roseman said in a statement. “They bring NFL scouting experience and have bright futures in the league.
“Our goal is to hire and promote the best people here and from around the league. This is a team effort; we all have a role to play and the more viewpoints we can kick around, the better. In the last couple of years, we’ve added some talented personnel men who have an incredible eye for talent in Tom [Gamble], Rick [Mueller], Ed [Marynowitz] and Tom [Donahoe], who come from a culture of winning to join our scouts and Anthony Patch who does a great job as our college director. We’ve been able to develop some youthful minds to the mix and are extremely excited about the direction we are headed.”
Here’s background on the new guys from the press release:
Davis joined the Eagles after serving as the assistant director of college scouting for the New York Jets the past five seasons. He was responsible for scouting the southeast region. In all, he spent 16 years with Jets’ player personnel department. A former wide receiver from Virginia State, Davis worked as a wide receivers and special teams coach at his alma mater prior to joining the NFL ranks.
Brown came to the Eagles after a three-year stint with the New England Patriots’ scouting staff, the last two campaigns as the team’s West Coast area scout. Brown played cornerback at UCLA, was signed by the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent in 2009 and played in the UFL. He is the son of former NFL running back Theotis Brown.
Clark most recently worked as the director of pro personnel of the Jacksonville Jaguars. A former wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers, Clark worked on the Jaguars’ scouting staff since 1997.
