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. His official title on the team is “Sports Science Coordinator,” a job that is unique compared to the rest of the typical training staff. Huls previous job was to train the most highly skilled soldiers in the world, the United States Navy SEALs.

  • this clown kelly thinks hes still in college
  • Give the man a break. If it works, he'll be a genius.
  • He was a clown when he coached small-school football.

    He was a clown when he went to Division 1 college.

    Change can be good, and we have change now. So I think we all need to relax with the hater stuff, and wait to see what becomes of Mr. Kelly and our "beloved Eggles"! :)
  • 6 years too late - Donavan needed him.
