The Philadelphia Eagles continued to fill the holes in their front office on Friday, promoting Anthony Patch and hiring Rick Mueller from outside the organization.
Patch, 33, was promoted to director of college scouting after spending 10 years in the scouting department and a short stint as former Eagles director of player personnel Ryan Grigson's assistant.
Mueller, 44, spent last season as general manager for the Omaha Nighthawks of the UFL, and has 15 years of NFL experience with the New Orleans Saints and Jacksonville Jaguars.
"We are very pleased to promote Anthony and add Rick to our scouting staff," said Eagles general manager Howie Roseman. "Anthony has been one of our top talent evaluators during his tenure as a college scout, has great relationships throughout football and is an extremely hard worker. Rick brings a wealth of NFL experience while giving us a new and fresh set of eyes to evaluate incoming talent. They will both play a role in helping us prepare for this offseason of free agency and the draft."
