NFL Head Coach: Philadelphia Eagles
Career Highlights: With a combined 20 years of NFL experience as both a coach and player, Doug Pederson is in his second season as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. Pederson joined the Eagles in 2016 after three seasons as the Kansas City Chiefs’ offensive coordinator. In his third stint with the Eagles, Pederson previously served as the team’s quarterbacks coach (2011-12) and offensive quality control coach (2009-10), and played quarterback for the team in 1999. As the Chiefs' offensive coordinator from 2013-15, Pederson helped Kansas City to a 31-17 regular-season record and two playoff appearances. In 2015, Pederson helped the Chiefs rebound from a 1-5 start to win a team-record 11 consecutive games, including Kansas City’s first playoff victory in 22 years. In 2013, Pederson helped turn a 2-14 Chiefs team into an 11-5 playoff squad, marking the largest one-year turnaround in team history. Before coaching, Pederson enjoyed a 12-year playing career in the NFL with the Packers, Dolphins, Eagles and Browns. As a backup quarterback for the Packers, he was part of a team that won Super Bowl XXXI, captured two NFC Championships and earned eight playoff berths and six division titles.
