The offseason has all been about the change for the Philadelphia Eagles. Things took a drastic turn after the Eagles started 10-1 before dropping six of their last seven games.

That led to a flurry of moves along the coaching staff, which included the Eagles firing Sean Desai after just one season as the defensive coordinator on Jan. 21.

After a few interviews, Philadelphia decided to hire Vic Fangio to become the new defensive coordinator. The Pennsylvania native was thrilled to come back to coach in his home state but he also spent one year as the defensive coordinator with the Miami Dolphins in 2023.

He and Miami mutually parted ways at the end of the season and a former player recently took a jab at his former DC.

Eagles News: Miami Safety Javon Holland Takes A Shot at Vic Fangio

Miami's Javon Holland spoke with reporters after practice on May 21 and he raved about new DC Anthony Weaver, while also snubbing his former coach. Holland said, "It’s the fact that he’s [Weaver] a good person that makes a difference.”

When Fangio and the Dolphins moved on from each other, Holland posted on social media, basically celebrating the move. Agent Drew Rosenhaus, who represents 11 Dolphin players, talked about Fangio's relationship in the locker room back in February.

He said, "There were quite a few players on the team that didn’t necessarily get along with Fangio. It wasn't a great relationship with many of the players. There were some guys that loved him, but there were quite a few that didn't. It definitely wasn't a unanimous positive relationship."

That seems to be the truth because Holland couldn't wait to take a shot at his former coach. Although things didn't work out for Fangio down in Miami, he's still a very respected and smart coach.

Vibes might be different in the city of Brotherly Love as they watched one of the worst defenses in the league in 2023.

Philly was 26th in the NFL in total yards allowed (356.1) and 31st in pass defense (252.7). The 65-year-old is now tasked with turning this unit around but has the talent on the unit to do so.
