Reports: Former Dolphins DC Burke joining Eagles

Former Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Matt Burke is expected to join Philadelphia and serve as a top assistant for Eagles coordinator Jim Schwartz, according to multiple reports Tuesday.Burke, 42, spent three years in Miami, serving as linebackers coach in 2016 before taking over for the departed Vance Joseph as coordinator in 2017. His unit ranked 16th in yards allowed but 29th in points allowed in 2017, and then finished 29th and 27th, respectively, this year.Philadelphia will be his fifth stop in the NFL, after previous stints as an assistant in Tennessee (2004-08), Detroit (2009-13) and Cincinnati (2014-15).Burke was not expected to stay with Miami after the Dolphins chose New England Patriots linebackers coach/de facto defensive coordinator Brian Flores as their next head coach. Flores’ hiring won’t be official until after the Super Bowl, and he declined to discuss the matter Monday, but his staff is quickly filling out.Per various previous reports, former Lions head coach Jim Caldwell is expected to join Flores to coach quarterbacks and be assistant head coach, while Patriots wide receivers coach Chad O’Shea is expected to be the offensive coordinator. Green Bay Packers linebackers coach Patrick Graham reportedly will be the defensive coordinator.On Tuesday, multiple outlets reported Miami is expected to hire former Buffalo Bills special teams coordinator Danny Crossman — who was fired after the season — for the same position.
