American football coach Nick Sirianni is the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Who is Nick Sirianni?

Nick Sirianni is the head coach of the American football team Philadelphia Eagles. Following his successful 3-years tenure as the offensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts, he was named the head coach for Philadelphia Eagles on 24 January 2021.

Early life and Education

On 15 June 1981, Nick Sirianni was born in Jamestown, New York. As of now, his age is 40 years. Sirianni went to the University of Mount Union and landed his first coaching gig immediately after graduating as the school’s defensive backs coach.

Sirianni is not the only one from his family to pursue football coaching as a career. Football runs in his family. His brother Mike is also a football coach. He is the head coach at Washington & Jefferson College.

Mike has bagged the most wins in the school history compared to any other coaches with 156-36, .813 winning percentage. Mike has also won the title of ‘PAC Coach of the Year’ 7-times. Nick’s other brother, Jay, is a former head coach of Southwestern Central High School, Jamestown. Under his supervision, the school won New York state titles in two consecutive years, 2008 and 2009. Their father, Fran Sirianni, also coached the football team of Southwestern Central for nine years. Nick is the youngest son among the three.

During Sirianni’s sophomore year in September 2001, he got an injury that nearly led to losing limb and life. It happened at football practice in Mount Union. The initial diagnosis showed ligament damage that would sideline him for a few weeks; however, it worsened once he suffered compartment syndrome. The blood built up to dangerous levels near his injured area, causing intense swelling and pain.

When the leg was opened up to release the blood, the muscle fell out only to be torn in half. His wound was left open for six weeks without sewing due to the swelling. He later developed a staph infection which almost cost him his limb. Sirianni was taken back to his hometown for treatment. He got admitted to a hospital for a week and a half, where he received eight IVs per day. He slowly recovered from the injury, but the doctors said he would probably not be able to play football or run again. 

But Sirianni spent only a couple of weeks at home and returned back to the college. He began walking on crutches and dressed his wound three times a day by himself. He slowly healed over a few months. After some months, he could sprint up and down the street again. Finally, after a year of injury, he returned to game action in September 2002 and led his team to the Division III national championship. 

Career

Before joining Philadelphia Eagles as the head coach, Sirianni worked as offensive coordinator for Indianapolis Colts. Under his supervision from 2018 to 2020, Indianapolis ranked eighth in offensive points per game(24.4), seventh in red zone touchdown efficiency (63.9 pct.), and sixth in third-down conversions (43.4 pct.). 

On 20 January 2021, the Philadelphia Eagles replaced their super-bowl-winning head coach with Nick Sirianni. Sirianni worked as an assistant to the ex-head coach who led the Eagles to the Super Bowl LII triumph in 2017. He began his career as a defensive backs coach for Division III powerhouse Mount Union and worked as an offensive coach for a dozen years.   

After joining the Philadelphia team, under Sirianni’s supervision, the Eagles suffered five back-to-back losses in six games. This setback raised questions on the coaching ability of Sirianni. Talking with the media on 27 October after three days of the ugly loss, Sirianni compared the Eagles to Flowers that were taking time to grow roots. The reactions to Sirianni’s comparison were mainly instantaneous. People demanded his resignation and called him names.

However, Sirianni insisted there was progress, and the practices were productive. In early November, everything he said turned out to be true. Philadelphia Eagles blossomed like a flower and won three games by double digits. Despite all the ugly wins, Sirianni’s motivation got through the players, and they kept improving and learning with progress being made every day.

Salary

Sirianni’s salary and net worth are yet to be explored. He is among one of the highest-paid coaches in the NFL.

Wife

Nick Sirianni is married to Brett Sirianni. The pair met at Kansas City, where Brett used to teach, and Nick coached the Chiefs. They got engaged after two years of dating. The couple moved to San Diego after their wedding.
