The Philadelphia Eagles made some moves to the roster and the coaching staff after they had a terrible ending to the 2023 season.

Fans were calling for head coach Nick Sirianni to be let go but management decided to fire both coordinators Brian Johnson and Sean Desai.

After multiple candidates and interviews, the Eagles made Kellen Moore the offensive coordinator.

The Eagles' offense sputtered down the stretch last year and they are hoping a new voice calling the plays will maximize this talented group. One downside of changing coordinators is that it's a whole new scheme and terminology that players need to learn.

That's something that has been a constant theme for Hurts in his playing career and he talked about it in a presser on April 17.

Hurts said, "I think as a player, I definitely yearn for the sustainability and the consistency there... As a quarterback, I yearn for those things in a play-caller and a quarterback coach because you kind of see how consistency in those areas can breed excellence."

The 25-year-old added, "I find myself in a situation very similar to college in terms of having a constantly revolving door in terms of coordinators and coaches."

The two-time Pro Bowler has seen a bunch of different coaches on the offensive side during his playing career. He spent three seasons at the University of Alabama before transferring to Oklahoma. During those four years, he never had the same coordinator.

It carried over to the pros. Hurts played under Shane Steichen from 2021-2022, where he developed into one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Steichen ended up moving on to become the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.

With Moore now in the fold, Hurts is tasked with learning another system but the 2020 second-round pick has succeeded in that department before. Hopefully this time, Moore is here for the long haul.
