The Eagles are set to have an opening in their personnel department.

They hired Joe Pannunzio as their director of personnel operations before the 2015 season after spending four years as the director of football operations at the University of Alabama. Pannunzio was hired when Ed Marynowitz was the vice president of player personnel, but Marynowitz left the team last year and wound up back in Tuscaloosa.

Pannunzio is making the same trip. Matt Zenitz of reports that Pannunzio will be the tight ends and special teams coach for the Crimson Tide. He’s coached both areas at several other college stops over the course of his career and was the head coach of Murray State from 2000-05.

Alabama is also looking for an offensive coordinator and have been linked to Patriots tight ends coach Brian Daboll.
