Eagles hire Ryan Day to coach quarterbacks

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Eagles have hired Ryan Day to be their quarterbacks coach.

The 35-year-old Day replaces Bill Musgrave after he left to become the offensive coordinator for the Oakland Raiders.

Day is the third quarterbacks coach in three years under Chip Kelly. Bill Lazor left after one season to be Miami's offensive coordinator.

Day was a three-year starter at quarterback at New Hampshire when Kelly was the offensive coordinator for the school. He joins the Eagles after a two-year stint as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Boston College.

Day previously was the wide receivers coach at Boston College from 2007-11. He was the offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach at Temple in 2012.
