PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles have hired former Cleveland Browns executive Andrew Berry as vice president of football operations.

The Eagles made several coaching changes, promoting Phillip Daniels to defensive line coach and Carson Walch to wide receivers coach. Mike Bartrum was hired as assistant tight ends coach. Matthew Harper was named assistant wide receivers coach.
Roy Istvan is assistant offensive line coach. T.J. Paganetti is assistant running backs coach. Luke Thompson is assistant special teams coach. Matt Burke is defensive special assistant. G.J. Kinne leads offensive special projects and Joe Pannunzio is director of team development.
