The Philadelphia Eagles won their first Superbowl and have extended their contracts with the two men who helped them do it, head coach Doug Pederson and General Manager Howie Roseman. The Eagle Organization signed the two through 2022 with hopes that there is a dynasty on the rise.
Eagles CEO and Chairman Jeffery Lurie issued the following statements:
“We are thrilled to solidify continuity in our organization’s leadership with the extensions of Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman, whose collaborative partnership helped deliver our city its first Super Bowl Championship. Doug and Howie are committed to the success of our franchise by ensuring that we remain competitive, both in the short and long term. That unified vision for the future of our team is what gives us the best chance to win moving forward.”
“I think they’re both, at this point, very, very humble. How they’ve handled success since Feb. 4 has been something very wonderful to behold. I think they both treat it like we just finished the season 7-9 or 8-8 and we can do much better than we did.”
“There’s no sense of, ‘We just won something gigantic, we’re world champions and we’ll let it fly.’ Not at all. They’re both, from Day 1, we had met in February, right before the parade, we had meetings on offense, defense, and overall football operations. We had everybody there and I have to tell you, the culture of the coaching staff and the football operations staff was, ‘this was really great. Let’s dig in. It’s now Day 1.”
“They’re both aggressive. They’re both risk-takers. It’s part of our culture. We never want to lose that.”
Doug Pederson has a history with the organization, playing quarterback for them back in the late 90s and early 2000s. He then rejoined the team as head coach in 2016.
Roseman’s roles behind the scenes have been crucial to the Eagles success.
Moving forward, the Eagles have secured their important assets.
