Chip Kelly has picked Bill Davis to be the new defensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles! Finally, the long grueling search is over, we have found the man who will return Philly’s defense to it’s once dominant ways…right?
Bill Davis (or is it “Billy”?). Wait, who? We’ve waited this long to find out it was going to be Billy friggin Davis? The linebackers coach for Cleveland whom the Eagles initially interviewed on January 27th, almost two weeks ago?
Yep, Bill Davis.
My first thought upon hearing this news was that Chip and the Eagles did not get the guy they were aiming for. We knew Davis was technically a “candidate” because of the interview, but apparently he didn’t “wow” them enough to be hired back then.
Seems to me that Davis was an “okay, maybe…let us check on a few other candidates and we’ll get back to you” type of guy.
The timing of this news certainly appears tied to the fact it’s after the Super Bowl and after National Signing
