NFC East Watch: Eagles Lose Their QBs Coach

Bill Lazor oversaw the rise of Nick Foles in 2013



    It certainly looks like the Philadelphia Eagles will lose quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor in the very near future. Who they would lose him to, until today anyway, was the question.

    On Tuesday evening, it was being reported that Lazor would head to Detroit to take over the Lions offense and work with Matthew Stafford. Now, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports (via Adam Schefter's twitter page) that his destination is not Detroit, but Miami, where he’ll take over as offensive coordinator and work with Ryan Tannehill.

    In 2013, Lazor oversaw the meteoric rise of Nick Foles and, along with first-year head coach Chip Kelly, helped Philly to become the No. 2 ranked offense in the league, behind only the Denver Broncos. They also won the NFC East and knocked your Cowboys out of playoff contention in Week 17, so here’s hoping the loss of Lazor will deal a blow to the team’s offense going into 2014.

    Prior to Philly, Lazor had stops in Atlanta, Washington and Seattle, as well as a three year stint--from 2010 to 2012--as the offensive coordinator and QBs coach for the University of Virginia.
