JEFF STOUTLAND OFFENSIVE LINE COACH/RUN GAME COORDINATOR
Jeff Stoutland joined
the Eagles as the team’s
offensive line coach in the
2013 offseason and took
on the added responsibility
of run game coordinator
during the 2018 offseason.
One of the nation’s most
respected offensive line
coaches, Stoutland boasts
35 years of coaching
stints at Miami (2007-10),
Michigan St. (2000-06),
and Syracuse (1997-99).
During his six
seasons as the Eagles’ offensive line coach, Stoutland has
played a critical role in offenses that set single-season franchise
records in points (474), touchdowns (54), completions (390),
gross passing yards (4,581), and first downs (356).
The Eagles’ 2018 offensive line featured two Pro Bowlers in tackle
Lane Johnson and guard Brandon Brooks. Additionally, center Jason
Kelce was voted first-team All-Pro by The Associated Press for the
second straight season after allowing only 1.0 sack in 16 games.
In 2017, Stoutland coached one of the most dominant offensive
lines in the NFL. Philadelphia’s line paved the way for a ground
attack that ranked third in the NFL in rushing offense (132.2
yards per game) and fourth in rushing average (4.47 yards per
carry). Johnson and Brooks were voted to their first career Pro
Bowls, while Johnson and Kelce earned AP All-Pro recognition.
Tackle Jason Peters, who sustained a season-ending injury in
Week 7, has also been named to four Pro Bowls (2013-16) and
two All-Pro teams (2013-14) under Stoutland’s tutelage.
Stoutland helped the Eagles field seven different starting
offensive line combinations in 2016. Those lines protected rookie
QB Carson Wentz, who set a team and all-time NFL rookie record
with 379 completions, while posting franchise rookie records in
pass attempts, passing yards, passing touchdowns, and completion
percentage. Over the course of the season, Stoutland oversaw the
progress of two rookie linemen in T Halapoulivaati Vaitai (six starts)
and G/T Isaac Seumalo (four starts at three different positions).
He coached a unit in 2014 that featured three Pro Bowlers
including G Evan Mathis, Kelce, and Peters, following a
season where both Peters and Mathis garnered All-Pro and
Pro Bowl accolades in 2013. His offensive line paved the way
for the NFL’s leading rusher in 2013, RB LeSean McCoy.
At Alabama, Stoutland’s 2012 offensive line featured two firstteam
All-Americans in C Barrett Jones and G Chance Warmack,
who helped pave the way for an offense that guided the Tide to
their second consecutive BCS National Championship. The unit,
which many insiders considered to be the best in college football
history, helped Alabama rank 20th nationally in rushing (224.6 ypg)
and 15th in scoring offense (38.5 ppg). In addition, Jones became
Alabama’s first Rimington Trophy winner as the nation’s top center.
In 2011, the Tide’s offensive line unit allowed the secondfewest
sacks in the SEC, allowing only 17 quarterback takedowns
in 13 contests. Both Jones and C William Vlachos were named
first-team All-SEC, while Jones was awarded the Outland
Trophy which is presented annually to the nation’s top interior

the Hurricanes lead the ACC in total offense (421.3 ypg) and finish
third in rushing (182.5 ypg). Brandon Washington was a firstteam
All-ACC selection at guard, while T Orlando Franklin was a

Before joining the staff at Miami, he spent seven seasons (2000-

tenure, he produced six All-Big Ten selections while seven Spartans
went on to earn Academic All-Big Ten honors. In addition, five of
his Spartan o-linemen went on to play in the NFL including Ulish
Booker, Kyle Cook, Chris Morris, Tupe Peko and William Whitticker.
The Michigan State offensive line paved the way for the nation’s
fifth-ranked offense in 2005. The 2004 Spartans offense ranked
second in the Big Ten and 10th in the NCAA in rushing, tallying
eight 200-yard rushing games. The offensive line unit allowed only
eight sacks during the 2004 campaign. Spartan RB T.J. Duckett
produced back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons in 2000-01.
