Eagles name Anthony Patch college scouting director

The Philadelphia Eagles lost Ryan Grigson from their front office as he departed to become the general manager of the Indianapolis Colts.

The club has filled the role as Anthony Patch has been named the director of college scouting and Rick Mueller has been hired as a pro personnel executive.

“We are very pleased to promote Anthony and add Rick to our scouting staff,” general manager Howie Roseman said in a statement released by the team. “Anthony has been one of our top talent evaluators during his tenure as a college scout, has great relationships throughout football and is an extremely hard worker. Rick brings a wealth of NFL experience while giving us a new and fresh set of eyes to evaluate incoming talent. They will both play a role in helping us prepare for this offseason of free agency and the draft.”

The 33-year-old Patch has spent the last 10 seasons in Philadelphia as a member of the Eagles scouting staff. He was named assistant director of college scouting in 2010. Mueller, 44, has been a director of player personnel for the Saints and director of college scouting for the Jaguars previously.
