With Schwartz’s early struggle this past season, it isn’t a bad idea of the Eagles to hire someone to work with Schwartz.
Schwartz actually used to work with Burke when he was the defensive coordinator for the Titans.
Nonetheless, Burke’s unit in Miami ranked 25th in DVOA during the 2018 season. Dolphins fans aren’t sad to see him go.
Schwartz will still call the defensive plays.Follow @EaglesFeast
