As the Eagles start to fill out their front office and coaching staff for the 2019 season, a nugget of news was reported yesterday that suggests a former employee returning to the team.
Joe Pannunzio, who was Alabama's running backs coach last season, is expected to leave for a new job in the near future and it's likely he ends up back with the Philadelphia Eagles, per sources https://t.co/x3Hy2waUDi

Joe Pannunzio was the Director of Personnel Operations for the Eagles in 2015 and 2016 before heading back to the University of Alabama to be their running backs coach.
If Pannunzio does indeed return, that will be the fifth hire for the Eagles in the past month. Since their season ended, the Eagles have added Roy Istvan as their assistant OL coach, Matt Burke to an advisory role for the defense, G.J. Kinne as an offensive assistant, and Carson Walch as the new wide receivers coach.
