Eagles' Writer Loves Jauron and April

The additions of special teams coordinator Bobby April and secondary coach Dick Jauron. Both are outstanding, with April one of the game's best at his position. The Eagles ranked 30th in kickoff returns and 23rd in punting last season, and April should make improvements in both areas. "I had an opportunity to bring Bobby in here," said Reid, "and I like the résumé. The great special-teams coaches are experts on angles and techniques, and that's what Bobby is." April coached in Buffalo under Jauron, who made his name as a top assistant before becoming a head coach. Jauron and Reid were together in Green Bay as assistants. I think you get the idea. These guys know each other. "When Dick was a head coach," Reid said, "he and I would always joke when we were at the owners' meetings. We'd say, 'Wouldn't it be great for one day to be a position coach again -- where you don't have all the worries?' So when he was released by the Bills I called him and said, 'Remember those conversations we had? I'm putting it out there; if you would like to come down we've got a spot for you.'"
