Johnson follows former Arizona Cardinals Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury, who had a virtual interview with the team.
The possibility of Jerrod Johnson getting a look at OC was first reported by Geoff Mosher and Adam Caplan on Monday morning’s episode of “Inside The Birds.”
Johnson spent 2023 as the quarterbacks coach for the breakout Houston Texans, who made the divisional round of the playoffs behind a historically great rookie campaign from number two overall pick C.J. Stroud. He had spent the previous season as assistant QBs coach for the Minnesota Vikings.
Eagles Head Coach Nick Sirianni is familiar with the 35-year-old from his days with Indianapolis. Johnson was with the Colts under the Bill Walsh Diversity coaching fellowship in 2019 and remained with Sirianni’s offense in 2020 as an offensive quality control coach.
Before his coaching career, Johnson spent time as a player on various team’s practice squads from 2011 – 2016. This began with a 17-day stint for the Eagles during their 2011 training camp.
According to ESPN, the Eagles are not the only team vying for this rising candidate.
