PHILADELPHIA -- Juan Castillo is the new defensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles, the team announced on Wednesday.

The Eagles also added offensive line coach Howard Mudd to Andy Reid's staff.

Philadelphia elected to stay in house, switching over Castillo, who spent 13 seasons as an Eagles offensive line coach, to the defensive side of the ball.

A former linebacker at Texas A&I (1978-80), Castillo, 51, played for the USFL's San Antonio Gunslingers (1984-85), and also was an assistant at Texas A&M-Kingsville from 1982-85.

The Eagles won the NFC East this season, and lost to the eventual NFC-champion Green Bay Packers, 21-16, in the wild-card round. Castillo replaces Sean McDermott, who was fired on Jan. 15.

Clancy Barone from TEs coach to OL coach to DC... Can you imagine the reaction? Or even Dave Magazu coming from Carolina as their OL coach to join Denver as a DC.
