A one-time Marshall football great and the pride of Meigs County is back in the National Football League.

Mike Bartrum said he has accepted a job as the tight ends coach and evaluator with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Bartrum spent seven years with the Eagles as the long snapper and tight end. After the 2005 season Bartrum was selected to the Pro Bowl team.

Bartrum has spent the last seven years as the head football coach at Meigs Local High School and also is in his third term as a Meigs County Commissioner (a post he resigned from this week).

Batrum was a star athlete for the Mauraders before becoming an All-American tight end at Marshall. In 2007, he was inducted into the Marshall Athletics Hall of Fame.

Following his collegiate career, Bartum played in two Super Bowls, one with the Eagles and one with the New England Patriots.

He also played for the Chiefs and Green Bay Packers.
