In stunning fashion, the Philadelphia Eagles reportedly have found their next head coach. Sources tell ESPN's Chris Mortensen that Chip Kelly will leave Oregon to become the Eagles' head man. An official announcement has yet to be made. https://twitter.com/mortreport/statuses/291590864059392000 Talk about coming out of left field. This would an absolute shocking turn of events considering Kelly recently decided to remain with the Ducks, spurning several NFL offers. Kelly led Oregon to bowl game appearances in four consecutive seasons, and is regarded as an offensive innovator. While his system arguably changed the landscape of college football, many wonder if it will translate in the pros. Nevertheless, the Eagles swung for the fences with this hire, succeeding Andy Reid with the hottest coaching name on the market.
