Found January 09, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The Philadelphia Eagles continue their search for their next head coach, and NFL sources now say the team is interested in filling the vacancy with Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly, according to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer. The latest big name on the team’s radar is Brian Kelly. The Eagles are interested in the 51-year-old Notre Dame coach and have made overtures to Kelly, two NFL sources said. On the surface, it doesn’t appear that Kelly is interested in leaving Notre Dame for the NFL ranks. He recently said that “leaving is not an option,” as coaching the Fighting Irish is his dream job. Still, we’ve seen coaching in this situation leave for the big lights and even bigger payday the NFL can provide in the past. He wouldn’t go as far as say he’ll never coach in the NFL, adding that “it’s all about timing.” With Notre Dame’s embarrassing loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide in the recent national title game, maybe he’ll view this as the right time to move on and take an opportunity while it’s available.
