PHILADELPHIA (AP) -The Philadelphia Eagles hired Sean McDermott as secondary coach Monday, replacing John Harbaugh.
McDermott coached the linebackers last season, helping Omar Gaither and Chris Gocong develop into full-time starters. He takes over for Harbaugh, who left to become head coach at Baltimore.
Bill Shuey moves from defensive quality-control coach to linebackers coach. Mike Caldwell will replace him, and Otis Smith will be the assistant secondary coach.
McDermott previously served as secondary coach from 2004-06. Smith and Caldwell spent time in Philadelphia during their NFL careers and were coaching interns with the Eagles last season.
