Eagles Hire Joseph As Director Of Pro Personnel
The Eagles named Dwayne Joseph director of pro personnel Wednesday. He replaces Rick Mueller, who was let go earlier this month.
ESPN’s Adam Caplan was first with the news.
Joseph spent the past two seasons as the Bears’ associate director of pro personnel. Prior to joining the Bears in 2012, he spent eight years with the Dolphins, mostly as a pro scout. The one exception was 2007 when he served as Miami’s assistant director of pro personnel. Ed Marynowitz was on the Dolphins’ staff as a scouting assistant that year.
Chip Kelly told reporters at the owners meetings that Marynowitz is responsible for constructing the personnel department.
“Ed’s in charge of personnel. We’ve maximized everybody. If something were to go on in personnel now than that’s under Ed’s domain, that’s what I hired him to do,” he said. “It’s not different than I hired Billy Davis to run our defense. I don’t turn around and ask someone else ‘What you do you think about what Billy is doing defensively?” Our defensive coaches have a certain role, our offensive coaches have a certain role, our personnel department has a certain role.”
Joseph played cornerback for the Bears, appearing in 16 games for Chicago in 1995. Prior to that he was a four-year letterman at Syracuse University. The former team captain went on to earn a master’s degree in education leadership from DePaul University.
The Eagles also promoted Louis Clark to senior director of pro personnel. Clark has been a pro scout with the team since 2013. Prior to that, he spent 16 seasons in the Jaguars player personnel department.
