Duce Staley

Assistant Head Coach/Running Backs


After an accomplished 10-year career as a running back in the NFL, Duce Staley entered the coaching ranks in 2010 as a coaching intern with the Philadelphia Eagles. After his coaching internship, Staley was soon hired by then-Eagles Head Coach Andy Reid into a full-time role as a special teams quality control coach in 2011. From that time, Staley earned multiple promotions throughout his 10 seasons on the Eagles coaching staffs, and has built a reputation as a bright, young coach. After two seasons under Reid, Staley was elevated to oversee the running backs in 2013 by new Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly, who retained Staley for his coaching staff.
