Philadelphia Eagles linebacker coach Ken Flajole won't be back with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2021, according to a report from Alex Marvez of SiriusXM Radio.
Not sure if this is out there but I am hearing that @Eagles LBs coach Ken Flajole won't be back in 2021. May be retiring (he's 66). Coached in college from 1979 to 1997 until jumping to the NFL. Joined Eagles in 2016. Highly respected in league circles.— Alex Marvez (@alexmarvez) January 9, 2021
The linebackers have been among the worst-performing positional groups on the Eagles' roster for years, and that was no different in 2020, particularly early in the season before Nate Gerry was replaced in the lineup by Alex Singleton. To be fair to Flajole, he has never had much to work with, personnel-wise.
Flajole has been the Eagles' linebackers coach since Doug Pederson took over as the team's head coach in 2016. As such, he was a part of the Birds' Super Bowl run, and an image of his face was even tattooed on former Eagles DE Chris Long's body.
Chris Long got his Ken Flajole tattoo. It’s on his side, chest-high, under his arm. He would not let me see it, or take a picture of it.— Jimmy Kempski (@JimmyKempski) July 27, 2018
A quick google search did not yield any pics of Long's tattoo.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Eagles now have to replace their defensive coordinator, and their linebackers coach. On the offensive side of the ball, they are reportedly planning on hiring a proper offensive coordinator, and are moving on from the silly mishmash of "Senior Consultants" they hired a year ago.
