Earlier this week, the Philadelphia Eagles interviewed Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly about filling their head coach vacancy. Despite commenting during the National Championship game that he was not leaving Notre Dame, Kelly interviewed on Tuesday with the Eagles anyways. Following the interview, both sides expressed interest before Kelly left the country for a vacation.
The Eagles and Kelly were set to meet this weekend, following Kelly’s return to the country. While the two sides have met, it is being reported that Brian Kelly will remain with Notre Dame.
This is the third time the Eagles have interviewed a college coach, only to be turned down each and every time.
First, the Eagles interview Penn State’s Bill O’Brien. Then Oregon’s Chip Kelly and finally Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly.
None of the collegiate coaches could be lured away from their respective positions.
What this means for the Eagles remains unclear. In the case of Chip Kelly and Brian Kelly, I believe they used their interviews with the Philadelphia Eagles as a way to earn more money at their current positions. Surely, both Kellys will be offered attractive extensions in the upcoming seasons.
I am not sure why Bill O’Brien chose to stay at Penn State, but his reasoning was he wanted to show his players that he was loyal to the school as well.
Where the Eagles go from here, I am unsure, but I am positive they will try to bring in a big name soon.
Or, perhaps, they are regretting Andy Reid go in the first place.
