After a season where they barely lost any games, the Philadelphia Eagles have done a lot of losing lately. It started in the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs, and it's continued throughout the offseason as a number of their coaches have departed.

On Sunday, the Eagles waved goodbye to another coach as the team parted ways with Dennard Wilson.

Philadelphia's defensive pass game coordinator and defensive backs coach is moving on after being passed over for a promotion to defensive coordinator. The role went to Sean Desai instead, who will replace Jonathan Gannon after he left to be head coach of the Arizona Cardinals.

While Wilson's situation is not uncommon, it still stings for a coaching staff that has experienced an alarming amount of turnover this offseason. He had been with the Eagles for the past two seasons and will now take his impressive resume elsewhere, which includes 11 seasons of NFL coaching experience.

Philly may regret not promoting Wilson and keeping him around when it had the chance, as he was a key part of the team's defensive success last year. The Eagles ranked eighth in points allowed, second in yards allowed and first in sacks with Wilson's help last year.

Time will tell where Wilson ends up and who ultimately replaces him in Philly, but whoever does will have some big shoes to fill.
