The Eagles finalized their coaching staff on Tuesday by making six coaching decisions. They also claimed CB Isaiah Trufant off waivers from the Jets.

The Eagles named Johnnie Lynn secondary/cornerbacks coach, David Culley senior offensive assistant/wide receivers, James Urban assistant offensive coordinator, Doug Pederson quarterbacks coach, Duce Staley special-teams quality-control coach and Bobby April Jr. defensive quality-control coach.

Lynn spent the past five seasons with the 49ers. Culley had been the Eagles' WRs coach since 1999. Pederson and Staley are former Eagles players who were on the staff in 2010.

Trufant played in one game with the Jets, recording two special-teams tackles. He was the UFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2010.
