Official: Carson Walch departs Eskimos for Eagles staff

The Eskimos have made it official: offensive coordinator and receivers coach Carson Walch has accepted an assistant wide receivers coach position with the Super Bowl champion Eagles.

“We’d like to thank Carson for his contributions to the Eskimos for the past two seasons and we wish him all the best in his new role with the Philadelphia Eagles,” general manager Brock Sunderland said in a statement.

Walch got his start in coaching at Winona State, his alma mater, in 2000 and came to the CFL in 2010 under then head coach Marc Trestman. Walch joined Trestman as an assistant with the Chicago Bears in 2013 and 2014 and returned to the CFL in 2016 as an assistant to head coach Jason Maas. He took over the play-calling duties last season.

Mike Groh, who was the receivers coach in Chicago under Trestman, currently fills that role for the Eagles.
