Report: Eagles hire nickel cornerbacks coach

We take a break from NFL free agency news to note that the Philadelphia Eagles have a new nickelbacks coach. The Birds are hiring former Chicago Bears defensive quality control coach Ronell Williams, according to a report from ESPN’s Courtney Cronin.

Williams has some ties to new Eagles defensive coordinator Sean Desai. Williams was a defensive analyst for a couple years at Temple, where Desai previously attended and coached at. The two did not overlap there but they likely have shared some contacts, which could have contributed to Williams getting a job in Chicago.
