The Eagles announced they have named Anthony Patch as Director of College Scouting and Rick Mueller as Pro Personnel Executive.

 “We are very pleased to promote Anthony and add Rick to our scouting staff,” GM Howie Roseman said in a statement. “Anthony has been one of our top talent evaluators during his tenure as a college scout, has great relationships throughout football and is an extremely hard worker. Rick brings a wealth of NFL experience while giving us a new and fresh set of eyes to evaluate incoming talent. They will both play a role in helping us prepare for this offseason of free agency and the draft.”

Patch, 33, spent the last 10 seasons on the Eagles scouting staff. He first joined the team in 2002 as a college scouting coordinator, was quickly promoted to college scout before being named assistant director of college scouting in 2010.

Mueller is a veteran of 15 NFL seasons with New Orleans (2000-08) and Jacksonville (1994-2000). With the Saints, he was vice president of player personnel from 2006-08 and director of player personnel from 2000-2006. He worked as the Jaguars director of college scouting (1998-2000) after 5 years as a college scout (1994-98).

Mueller, 44, most recently spent two seasons as an executive in the UFL, serving as general manager of Omaha in 2010 and as vice president and general manager for all four teams in their inaugural season of 2009.  

The most significant move in the personnel department will involve finding a replacement for Ryan Grigson, who left to become the general manager of the Colts. Roseman suggested this week at the Senior Bowl that the move might not come until after the draft. The contracts of most personnel people run through the draft.
