Hillsdale’s Mudd back in the NFL as Eagles Line Coach

Indianapolis Star – Original Article

(Hillsdale College All-American and All Pro lineman) Howard Mudd’s retirement was brief.

The long-time offensive line coach with the Indianapolis Colts, who retired from the NFL following the 2009 season, has accepted a similar position with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to the team’s website.

Mudd, who turns 69 next month, had directed the Colts’ offensive line for 12 years before announcing his retirement that became effective after the 2009 season. He has been an NFL assistant since 1974.

“Very smart and has clearly got the experience to probably be the best offensive line coach this league has seen,’’ Colts’ offensive tackle Ryan Diem said in a story posted on the Eagles’ website.

“He definitely brings some flavor … and he’s a special guy,’’ added Colts’ Pro Bowl center Jeff Saturday.
