Report: Former Eagles Pass Game Coordinator Press Taylor Joining Colts Coaching Staff

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles-Minicamp Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

According to The MMQB’s Albert Breer, former Philadelphia Eagles pass game coordinator Press Taylor is expected to help fill the Indianapolis Colts vacant position—after ironically, former Colts pass game coordinator Kevin Patullo and him essentially traded places this early offseason:

At age 33, Taylor just completed his sole season as pass game coordinator for the Eagles, having previously served as the franchise’s quarterbacks coach (2018-20) and assistant quarterbacks coach/offensive quality control (2016-17), and offensive quality control coach (2013-2015) respectively.

He was also a quarterbacks coach and graduate assistant for Tulsa (2011-12).

Taylor won consecutive NJCAA championships starting at Butler Community College at quarterback—before transferring and playing at Marshall University and lettering his last two seasons.

Of course, Colts head coach Frank Reich has familiarity and a comfort zone with Taylor already, as the two previously both served on the Eagles offensive coaching staff from 2016-17 and were Super Bowl Champions together.

The question for Taylor—and the Colts is who the starting quarterback will be for Indianapolis next season to help with the coaching of the team’s passing game.
