The Philadelphia Eagles are likely going to fire coach Andy Reid at the end of the season, and possibly will look to the college ranks to grab their next head coach. They’ll be looking to replicate the success that recent coaches have had after making the jump to the NFL, or in the case of Seattle coach Pete Carroll, BACK to the NFL. The leading name that’s emerging for the job is Oregon’s Chip Kelly. Kelly was very close to accepting the Tampa Bay Bucs job last season before deciding to turn the job down. Now Kelly will have to decide whether or not to throw his name in the hat and attempt a job at the next level. The Philadelphia Eagles will consider Chip Kelly to replace Andy Reid, according to league sources, and multiple executives with rival teams anticipate Philadelphia making a heavy push to land the Oregon head coach. *** The Eagles have not looked to the college ranks for a head coach since hiring Dick Vermeil away from UCLA in 1976. Vermeil led the team to one of its two Super Bowl appearances to date in his seven seasons with the team (1976-82). The fact that the Eagles last college hire had success and the possibility of NCAA sanctions ahead for the Ducks, could make Kelly’s decision a little easier. In the mean time, Kelly is preparing for a Fiesta Bowl appearance against Kansas State on January 3rd.
