The Eagles have made some coaching changes....

James Urban will be upgraded from Offensive Assistant/Quality Control coach to quarterbacks coach, replacing Pat Shurmur who moved to St. Louis last week as an offensive coordinator.

Former Eagles quarterback Doug Pederson, who was hired last week, takes over Urban's old post.

Defensive line coach Pete Jenkins retired... again, and is being replaced by former special teams coach Rory Segrest.

The Eagles hired former special teams assistant Ted Daisher to take over Segrest's position as Special Teams coach. Daisher was with the Eagles in 2004-05. He later went to Oakland and Cleveland, but lost his job when the Browns eviscerated their entire coaching staff.

Wide Receivers coach David Culley keeps his title, but now has more responsibility with the offensive gameplanning.

Also... and you all are going to hate this one....

Ticket prices will be increasing next season.

Most seats will have a $5 per game increase, but lower level endzone seats will go up $10 per ticket.

The Eagles did not raise ticket prices last season and were ranked 15th in the NFL in the average cost of ducats in 2008.
