Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has promoted Ed Marynowitz from assistant director of player personnel to vice president of player personnel.
Marynowitz got his first NFL job in 2007, when he was a scouting assistant with the Miami Dolphins. While he was in Miami he was working closely with Bill Parcels and Jeff Ireland.
From 2008-2011 Marynowitz worked as the University of Alabama's director of player personnel. During his time at Alabama the school had three number one ranked recruiting classes in the country. Eight of the players that Marynowitz recruited turned out to become first round selections in the NFL Draft. Alabama won two national championships, 2009 and 20011, while amassing a record of 36-5.
Marynowitz joined the Eagles front office in 2012, becoming the assistant director of pro scouting and was promoted to assistant director of player personnel a year later. Marynowitz was also part of the search committee to find a replacement for Andy Reid that eventually brought Chip Kelly to Philadelphia.
Kelly, in a statement through the team's website, had this to say about Marynowitz.Read more... Join the Conversation...
