He was previously an assistant in the college ranks at Virginia, Alabama and Louisville.
His only experience as an offensive coordinator came at Virginia from 2006 through 2008 under his father, Al Groh.
The Cavaliers ranked 111th, 82nd and 115th in scoring in Groh's three seasons as offensive coordinator.
Groh will take over an Eagles offense that ranked seventh in total yardage and third in scoring last season.
He will also have the benefit of returning quarterback Carson Wentz provided he heals from a torn ACL and reclaims his starting job from Super Bowl LII MVP Nick Foles.
