Chip Kelly is ready to turn the NFL on its head. The new Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach recently completed his staff which will help bring his innovative, high-paced offense to the NFL. Not only did the Ducks play at a breakneck speed in games, but so were practices. That means players have to be in top physical condition to keep pace throughout several months of a season. The NFL is an even longer season, more grueling season, so it is even more imperative. That means the usual strength and conditioning isn’t going to cut it, and Kelly is thinking outside-the-box, just as he did with his offensive system. The final hiring of Kelly’s staff is Shaun Huls.

  • 6 years too late - Donavan needed him.
