Eagles' Tom Donahoe leaving team amid front office changes

Eagles Senior Dir of Player Personnel Tom Donahoe “will not be returning to the team” as the front office "continues to undergo change" after the NFL Draft, according to Jeff McLane of the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER. The Eagles and Donahoe “met after the draft” with his contract expiring, and after those discussions “he decided it was time to move on and the organization supported him.” His future plans or whether he plans to retire “remain unclear.” Donahoe was one of GM Howie Roseman’s "chief scouts" and a "longtime mentor" to VP/Player Personnel Andy Weidl. The 75-year-old had been in the personnel department since ’12 and was a “veteran voice who brought 38 years of NFL experience” to the Eagles. The Eagles “have begun interviewing outside candidates.” They "already met" with former NFL scout & Senior Bowl Dir Jim Nagy and “were expected to interview” Steelers Pro Scouting Coordinator Brandon Hunt (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 5/7).
