Report: Eagles QB Coach Bill Lazor to Become Lions Offensive Coordinator

As one victory came, a loss followed. After Albert Breer reported that Philadelphia Eagles VP of Personnel Tom Gamble, the co-orchestrator of this past year’s draft and free agency gains, will remain with the team, ESPN’s Ed Werder dimmed the joy in Eagles fans by reporting that QB coach Bill Lazor will be heading to Detroit to be Jim Caldwell’s new offensive coordinator.

Lazor, who came to the Eagles to work under Chip Kelly after three seasons as the University of Virginia’s offensive coordinator, is the one who had to cope with the midseason switch at quarterback, from Michael Vick to Nick Foles, and performed admirably. Kelly and Foles often credited Lazor will helping the offense adjust to a new quarterback, and helping Foles develop into one of the most proficient passers in the league.

This is certainly a big loss for the Eagles staff; not only will it mean a 3rd quarterbacks coach in 3 years for Foles, but it could disrupt the Eagles franchise QB in arguably the most important offseason of his career.

There is no word on possible replacements for Lazor at this time.
