Urban became a coaching intern for the Philadelphia Eagles during training camp in 2003. The assistant to head coach Andy Reid tore a patellar tendon during camp, and Urban took over his duties while he recovered. He was promoted to that position full-time in 2004. He was promoted to offensive assistant/quality control coach on February 20, 2007. He was promoted to quarterbacks coach in 2009 after Pat Shurmur left to be the offensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams. When the Eagles signed Michael Vick during the preseason in 2009, Urban and offensive quality control coach Doug Pederson helped acclimate Vick to the offensive scheme. Urban was promoted to assistant offensive coordinator on February 8, 2011.
On January 5, 2018, Urban was hired by the Baltimore Ravens to be their new quarterbacks coach.
