Much to everyone's surprise, another Eagles coach has departed.

Roy Istvan, Jeff Stoutland's longtime top assistant, departed the Eagles for Kevin Stefanski's Browns in an unexpected move.

On Thursday morning, the Browns announced on their website that Istvan, the Eagles' assistant offensive line coach since 2019, has been hired by new Browns o-line coach Andy Dickerson. Dickerson succeeded Ray Rhodes' Eagles offensive line coach Bill Callahan, who is currently Titans o-line coach under his son Brian.

Istvan's Stoutland relationship is almost 30 years old. Istvan coached alongside Stout at Southern Connecticut State in the late 1980s after playing with him. After nearly 30 years coaching college, he joined the Eagles in 2019.

Stoutland shared a video on social media last week implicitly implying that he will return to Nick Sirianni's staff. He is the only 2023 Eagles assistant coach returning under new coordinators Kellen Moore and Vic Fangio.

Stefanski hired Duce Staley as running backs coach earlier this month. Istvan and Staley were Eagles teammates under Doug Pederson in 2019 and 2020. Also alongside Istvan was Browns defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. In 2019, Browns general manager Andrew Berry was Eagles VP of football operations. Istvan is Nick Sirianni's 2023 seventh assistant coach who has left the squad.

Offensive coordinator Brian Johnson is Commanders passing game coordinator, defensive coordinators Sean Desai and Matt Patricia have left but not been hired elsewhere, quarterbacks coach Alex Tanney is Colts passing game coordinator under Shane Steichen, senior offensive assistant Marcus Brady is Chargers passing game coordinator, and Tracy Rocker is Titans defensive line coach.

Running backs coach Jemel Singleton, receivers coach Aaron Moorehead, tight ends coach Jason Michael, linebackers coach D.J. Eliot, edge coach Jeremiah Washburn, and other assistant position coaches and quality control coaches are unknown.

The Eagles had four offensive lineman make 11 Pro Bowls in Istvan's five years with Stoutland: Jason Kelce five, Lane Johnson three, Landon Dickerson two, and Brandon Brooks one.
