REPORT: Matt Patricia To Call Defensive Plays For Eagles During MNF Game vs Seahawks

Philadelphia Eagles senior defensive assistant Matt Patricia will have a larger role with the Eagles as they continue to search for solutions to a struggling defensive.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Patricia will be on the sideline calling the defensive plays starting Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks.

Does this mean Patricia is going to take over as the Eagles defensive coordinator? Not exactly, but it’s an odd dynamic for the Eagles. Their current defensive coordinator, Sean Desai, is going to move to the coaching booth. What exactly he’ll be doing during the game is to be determined.

This is obviously something to monitor going forward as Patricia’s role is only going to grow from here..
