Andy Reid is the current head coach of the Eagles after being hired in 1999.

This is a list of head coaches for the Philadelphia Eagles. The Philadelphia Eagles are a professional American football team based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Eagles joined the National Football League (NFL) as an expansion team in 1933. Currently members of the Eastern Division of the National Football Conference (NFC), the team has won three NFL titles and made two Super Bowl appearances (1980 and 2004). There have been twenty head coaches of the Eagles in the NFL.

Two different coaches have won NFL championships with the team: Earl "Greasy" Neale in 1948 and 1949, and Buck Shaw in 1960.[1] Andy Reid is the all-time leader in games coached, wins, and in winning percentage with .618 (with at least one full season coached).[2] Bert Bell is statistically the worst coach the Eagles have had in terms of winning percentage, with .185 win/loss percentage.[3]

Of the twenty Eagles coaches, two have been elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame: Bell and Neale.[4] Wayne Millner, who coached the team in 1951, was enshrined as a player in 1968. Several former NFL players have been head coaches for the Eagles, including Jerry Williams, Ed Khayat, and Marion Campbell. The current coach is Andy Reid, who was hired on January 11, 1999.[5]
