A shocking development in Philadelphia. After previously turning down the Philadelphia Eagles offer to become their next head coach, Oregon Ducks’ head coach Chip Kelly has now accepted the position according to a report from ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. Chip Kelly is the new coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, according to league sources. No announcement yet. — Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) January 16, 2013 As Mortensen stated, their has been no official announcement from the Eagles or the NFL at this time, nor has Oregon or Chip Kelly made a statement. Kelly had previously had a 9-hour interview before deciding to return to Eugene two weeks ago. Kelly led the Ducks to 4-straight BCS games, including the 2010 National Title Game. He accumulated a 46-7 record, and won the 2011 Rose Bowl and the 2012 Fiesta Bowl.

  • Get ready for another disappointing season Philadelphia. Remember college genius coach Steve Spurrier, he stunk as an NFL coach in Washington. Not to mention that an NFL team doesn't get 8 to 10 1st round draft picks each year. When a top flight college program recruits, that's basically what the head coach is getting because he recruits the best stud high school athletes around, which is what Oregon has been doing since Kelly took over. And finally, the type of offense he ran in college won't work in the NFL, it never has. Remember that in the NFL everyone is a stud or they wouldn't be there. In college the vast majority of players will never step foot on an NFL field, you can run all over defenses like that. The NFL compared to college seperates the men from the boys big time. He may be an improvement over Reid in time, but I wouldn't be booking my flight to the next Super Bowl just yet. Besides, if he's so great, why hasn't he won a National Championship. I just wish you had signed Brian Kelly instead and got his sorry butt out of South Bend.
