Chip Kelly is quickly assembling members of his Philadelphia Eagles coaching staff. Former Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur is rumored to be tapped as the Eagles offensive coordinator, and now word surfaces of a possible defensive coordinator. Howard Eskin believes that the Eagles and Chip Kelly will hired current San Francisco 49ers defensive backs coach Ed Donatell.
Eskin reports on Twitter, “2 NFL sources and another report have #49ers DB Ch Ed Donatell likely 2 B #Eagles DC for Chip Kelly. Kelly knew Donatell as DC at U of Wash.”
There has been no official request made by the Eagles to the Niners in order to speak with Donatell as of yet. Philadelphia will likely have to wait until after the Super Bowl.
