The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to part ways with long-time coach Andy Reid at the end of their disappointing season, and Oregon coach Chip Kelly, who’s reportedly headed for the NFL, could be the team’s top choice as a replacement, according to Albert Breer of NFL.com. NFL.com's Albert Breer said Friday on NFL Network's "Around The League" that the team most associated with Kelly right now is the Philadelphia Eagles. Andy Reid is expected to be fired after the season, opening the Eagles head-coaching position for the first time since 1999. Kelly will likely want to control the personnel wherever he goes, and the Eagles had given Reid control over those matters, according to Breer. Beyond the Eagles, the Carolina Panthers and Cleveland Browns are also expected to pursue Kelly. If Breer adds that if Philadelphia doesn’t land or elects not to pursue him, another target could be University of Washington coach Steve Sarkisian.
