The Eagles finally got off the pot and in a big way landing their top choice in their coaching search, Oregon’s Chip Kelly.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen confirmed on Wednesday that Kelly had taken the job. Neither the Eagles’ nor Oregon University has confirmed the news, but reports have since surfaced that Kelly has accepted the Eagles’ offer.
Kelly is 46-7 in four years at Oregon and led the Ducks to four straight BCS bowl games, including a bid for the national championship and three Pac-12 championships.
Oregon last season went 12-1 in 2012 and the team was ranked No. 1 until a 17-14 overtime loss to Stanford on Nov. 17.
