Seahawks’ Pete Carroll confirms that Sean Desai will be Eagles new DC

The NFL Scouting Combine is all about networking and getting deals done, but Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll can also add league news breaker to his resume.

Sean Desai left Philadelphia on Tuesday morning without a formal announcement, but during his afternoon press conference at Lucas Oil Stadium, Caroll confirmed from his perspective, that Seattle’s assistant head coach would be joining the Eagles as defensive coordinator.

The Seahawks associate head coach, Desai is a Temple grad (and former Temple assistant) who has experience as a defensive coordinator (Bears) and has experience in the Vic Fangio defense.

Desai started his NFL coaching career with the Bears in 2013 as a defensive quality control coach. He held that position until he was promoted by then-head coach Matt Nagy to safeties coach in 2019.
