Philly Sports Muse:
The third college head coach that the Philadelphia Eagles have interviewed in their search for a head coach, Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly, has decided to stay with his current institution rather than make a leap at the NFL. In an effort to create a sense that the search is still very much on track, the team released a statement about this fact on Saturday evening.
“There is no question we spent a considerable amount of time and effort looking at who we thought were the best collegiate candidates for our head coaching job. We did so knowing that there was a remote chance that these coaches would leave their current posts. We understood that going into the process, but we wanted to leave no stone unturned while trying to find the best head coach for the Philadelphia Eagles. We have no regrets about the effort we made in that direction and we will continue to proceed as planned in our search.”
Are you buying it what the Eagles are trying to sell?

Even though the Philadelphia Eagles are trying their hardest to hire a college coach with no NFL experience, I’m still trumpeting what I think is in the best interest of this organization.

Brian Kelly announced that he is staying at Notre Dame despite interviewing for the Philadelphia Eagles' head coaching job.
According to ProFootballWeekly.com, there’s a chance the Philadelphia Eagles could cut some big name players on their defense. It will depend on what kind of defense they’re going to run in 2013.

La Canfora also reported that while Billick hasn’t been a hot candidate, teams like the Bills have approached him over the years.
I think Billick is a good head coach. I’m not sure why he hasn’t...
Yet another college coach has been wined and dined by an NFL team, only for him to decide to stay at their current job, after a little monetary incentive to stick around. The Philadelphia Eagles just can't catch a break. They've tried to lure Penn State's Bill O'Brien, Oregon's Chip Kelly, and now Brian Kelly.
Brian Billick‘s name seems to come up every so often when discussing NFL head coaching vacancies, so in an offseason in which tons of pink slips have been handed out, it was really only a matter of time before the former Ravens head coach became the subject of speculation.
Well, perhaps there’s more to the story this time around. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Philadelphia...

This head coach audition is already getting old for me--- but I should be more patient. Next up--- Jeff and Howie interview Jay Gruden, the NFL's version of Prince Harry compared to older brother William (Jon Gruden).
The team already has interviewed seven candidates since firing Andy Reid on Dec. 31, and has permission to speak to two other...

Snubbing the Philadelphia Eagles and their subhuman fan base, Brian Kelly has decided to remain the head coach of the University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish. After the Irish were embarrassed by Alabama 42-14 in Monday’s BCS National Championship Game, … Continue reading →
When Andy Reid was announced as the Chiefs new Head Coach a week ago it didn’t take him long to find a pair of qualified men to become his top coordinators. In dipping into the coaching carousel, he found Doug Pederson to run the offense and Bob Sutton to handle the defense.
