Chip Kelly Leaves Oregon To Coach Philadelphia Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles parted ways with long time head coach Andy Reid at the end of the season, and have wasted no time bringing in a new head coach.
Chip Kelly has left his job as head coach of the Oregon Ducks to pursue a career in the NFL. He has agreed to a deal with the Eagles, league sources told ESPN. Kelly was interviewed early for the position after Reid’s exit.
In his four years as Oregon head coach, Kelly is 46-7, has three Pac-12 championships, and appeared in four straight BCS Bowl Games. Kelly’s Ducks had a bid fro the national title two seasons ago, but lost to Auburn.
