The Philadelphia Eagles hired former UFL executive Rick Mueller as a player personnel executive and promoted Anthony Patch to director of college scouting.
The Eagles have yet to replace director of player personnel Ryan Grigson, the Indianapolis Colts' new general manager.
That may happen after the draft in April.
"We are very pleased to promote Anthony and add Rick to our scouting staff," Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said. "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."
Patch, 33, has been on the Eagles' staff since 2002.
He was promoted to assistant director of college scouting in 2010.
As for Mueller, he has previously worked in personnel departments for the New Orleans Saint s and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Mueller, 44, was most recently the Omaha Nighthawks' general manager and vice president.
