Report: Philadelphia Eagles interview Texas A&M alumnus Jerrod Johnson for OC vacancy

A former Texas A&M starting quarterback may be the next offensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles.

According to ESPN senior NFL insider Adam Schefter, the Eagles interviewed Houston Texans quarterbacks coach Jerrod Johnson on Wednesday for their vacancy. Philadelphia fired Brian Johnson on Tuesday.

Johnson reportedly interviewed for the New Orleans Saints OC vacancy earlier this week as well. He played at Texas A&M from 2006 to 2010, starting under center for his final three seasons.

Before suiting up for six NFL teams during his playing career, Johnson made history in College Station. When he graduated, the Houston native held two Texas A&M program records with the most yards passing (8,011) and total offensive yards (8,888) all-time. Kellen Mond now holds both records and Johnson is third in total yards behind Mond and Johnny Manziel.

Johnson got his start in coaching with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017 under the Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship. He served in the same position with the Indianapolis Colts in 2019 before being elevated to an offensive quality control coach for the next two seasons. Johnson served as assistant quarterbacks coach on the Minnesota Vikings in 2022 before being hired by Texans head coach DeMeco Ryans prior to this season.

Given the success of Ohio State alumnus, rookie CJ Stroud, under the guidance of Johnson, the interviews will continue to roll in for the former Aggie.
