Two of the first big decisions Chip Kelly must make as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles will define his first three to four seasons in the NFL.
Don’t expect new Eagles head coach Chip Kelly to run the exact same offense he used at Oregon in the NFL, or rule out Nick Foles as his quarterback.
UPDATE (12:33 p.m.): Eagles have issued a statement. Chip Kelly, known for possessing strong leadership and one of the most innovative minds in football today, will be the new head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles – the 21st head coach in the franchise’s history. Rest can be read here. UPDATE (12:31 p.m.): Eagles make it official. [...]
Is the Eagles head coaching gig that much better than the one in Jacksonville? With Gus Bradley en route to interview with the Jaguars — a job many fear he may take — let’s analyze the merits of each job, based on the same factors Bradley will. Roster Ratings from ESPN Scouts Inc. Obviously a [...]
Some took the news yesterday that Brian Kelly would be staying in South Bend as conclusive evidence that the Eagles head coaching position is unattractive.

Two ways to read that: One, they’re being open-minded about it. Two, they’re not sure what they want. Neither is bad — not necessarily. The latter, of course, would be concerning if the team’s second-in-the-NFL 10-candidate search was full of Mike Nolans and Keith Armstrongs. But it hasn’t been. It seems as if they’ve identified a few [...]
Maybe Brian Kelly did interview with the Eagles last night to leverage a raise and contract extension from Notre Dame. Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated tweeted last night that’s what a Notre Dame source told him. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk noted that, literally, minutes after the interview, FOX’s Jay Glazer, ESPN’s Adam Schefter [...]
