Report: Eagles add Jauron as DBs coach

The Eagles have brought Dick Jauron on board to coach their secondary, a league source tells Jason La Canfora of NFL.com.

Brian Stewart coached the DBs last year but left after one season in Philadelphia to become the defensive coordinator at the University of Houston.

Jauron, 59, spent the last four seasons in Buffalo. He was fired as head coach of the Bills last year after the team began the season 3-6. Buffalo went 7-9 under Jauron in each of the previous three seasons.

He was the head coach of the Bears from 1999-2003 and served as interim head coach of the Lions in 2005. Jauron's overall record as a head coach is 60-82.

Jauron and Andy Reid worked together in Green Bay from 1992-94. He also served as the Jaguars' defensive coordinator from 1995-98 and the Lions' defensive coordinator in 2004-05.

Reid's staff has undergone a bit of a shake-up over the last two seasons.

Before last season, assistant DBs coach Otis Smith was let go, and Sean McDermott of course took over for Jim Johnson as defensive coordinator.

And last month, the team announced that Bobby April would replace Ted Daisher as special teams coach.
