PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - The Philadelphia Eagles announced that Pro Football Hall of Famer Brian Dawkins is stepping down from his full-time role in the Eagles front office after two seasons.
According to the Eagles, Dawkins will become a consultant with the team while also pursuing other endeavors including entrepreneurship and philanthropy.
"I want to thank Jeffrey Lurie, Howie Roseman, Don Smolenski, and Coach (Doug) Pederson for blessing me with the opportunity to return to this great organization. This is a special time in Philadelphia Eagles history and I am grateful to have been a part of the team's first Super Bowl Championship - something I wanted to help bring to this great city, one way or another," Dawkins said. "I will always cherish the relationships I have within the building and it was a privilege to work side-by-side with so many great people. I have put a lot of time and prayer into this decision, and after talking it over with my family and listening to the Lord, I am being called in a different direction as I take the next step in my life and career. Although I am leaving my full-time role in football operations, I will always be a part of the Eagles family and the Philadelphia community. I look forward to continuing to work with the organization as a consultant while I also pursue other endeavors that are extremely important to me and my family's purpose to inspire hope and increase the minds, bodies, and souls of so many to come."
