There's not much that can bring the Philadelphia Eagles back down to earth just yet with the confetti still falling and the team still flying high from its recent Super Bowl win.

But a deeper look into some of the coaching staff movement going down the past week could raise some sense of concern.

Former quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo is now the offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings and now former offensive coordinator Frank Reich is the head coach for the Indianapolis Colts. Those are two major players responsible for the Eagles offensive success last season, and players will notice both men's absence.

  Report: Colts hope to hire Frank Reich as head coach, pending deal Indianapolis Colts are reportedly to hire Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich as the head coach pending a deal.The Colts reportedly hope to make Reich the new head coach once they have negotiated a signed and delivered contract, per ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen:

Especially Carson Wentz, who took time out Sunday morning to express his appreciation for his former coordinator.

With Reich and DeFilippo gone, the team will need to begin their plan of succession and promotions within the staff to counter the loses. Look for running backs coach Duce Staley to be a candidate for either position before 2018's season officially begins on March 14.

As for Wentz's response, it just shows how together this team is, and that chemistry alone was a big part as to why Philly were the ones left hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in February.
