He was promoted to that position full-time in 2004.[2] He was promoted to offensive assistant/quality control coach on February 20, 2007.[1] He was promoted to quarterbacks coach in 2009 after Pat Shurmur left to be the offensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams.[3] When the Eagles signed Michael Vick during the preseason in 2009, Urban and offensive quality control coach Doug Pederson helped acclimate Vick to the offensive scheme.[4] Urban was promoted to assistant offensive coordinator on February 8, 2011.[5]
