Now that the eight open coaching positions have all been filled, we can begin to evaluate the selections and the likelihood those new coaches will succeed. For our purposes today, we'll simply start with the coach I feel has the best chance to succeed and work our way to the coach I believe has very little hope for success.
Best chance for success
Chip Kelly (Philadelphia Eagles): Normally I don't think college head coaches make the transition to the pro game very well, but Chip Kelly is an innovative offensive mind, and he has some weapons to play with in Philadelphia. The Eagles really needed a change of pace after so many years with Andy Reid, and I think Kelly fits the bill very well.
Andy Reid (Kansas City Chiefs): Reid takes over a team in desperate need of direction. The Chiefs have more questions than answers, and Andy Reid knows how to make the tough decisions that will move Kansas City in the right direction. The Chiefs will take a few years to rebuild, so fa...
BEST OF MAXIM
According to ProFootballWeekly.com, head coach Andy Reid will look to add some depth along the offensive line. There could also be some turnover along their talented defensive front.
We hear that Andy Reid likely will take a similar approach to rebuilding the Chiefs to the way he did the Eagles more than a decade ago: in the trenches. Although Reid is said to like what the Chiefs...

The Eagles held a press conference today at 1:30 to introduce new head coach Chip Kelly.
The press conference, which aired live on Comcast SportsNet, focused mostly on Kelly and the organization's decision to come together and make him the next Eagles' head coach.
However, you knew Andy Reid was going to be mentioned at some point.
"One person I...
The Kansas City Chiefs will win the AFC West in 2013. Here are five reasons why (in no particular order).1. Head Coach, Andy Reid - He is one of the best coaches in football.The guy just knows how to win. He has won 130 games during his 14-year head coaching career, which began in 1999.He has made the playoffs in nine of his 14 seasons. He will turn the Chiefs around in a short...
1. OT from Texas A&M – Luke Joeckel – He’s the best OT in the draft and could very well be the first pick in the NFL draft depending on what direction Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs go. Standing at 6’6 and 310 pounds, he was meant to be a teams’ franchise left [...]
In the wake of the New York Jets announcing the hiring of John Idzik as the organization’s next General Manager, the coaching dominoes have already begun to fall into place. Shortly after agreeing to terms with Idzik, the Jets have hired Marty Mornhinweg as Offensive Coordinator. Both of these hirings finally give the Jets a bit more stability moving forward, after a three week...
When the Eagles had officially fired Andy Reid, one of the names that continued to surface as possible replacements before Chip Kelly was hired was ESPN Analysts Jon Gruden.
However if you ask Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, Gruden made it clear to him that that was speculation and that he would not return to coaching this year.
Per Profootballtalk: “Jon made it clear that he was...
After 14 years, the Andy Reid era in Philadelphia has come to an end and a new era...the Chip Kelly Era, has begun. Reid, who was fired the day after the season ended, had won just 12 games in the previous two seasons and had no playoff appearances since 2008. Chip Kelly, on the other hand, went 46-7 in four seasons and put Oregon on the map as a major player in college football...
Firing Andy Reid was only a good idea if the Eagles could find a better (more winning) coach. Kelly had a 46-7 record at Oregon which is quite impressive. Will it translate to the NFL? Can he bring the Eagles back into a very competitive NFC East with the Giants, Cowboys and Redskins? His Oregon offense was base on a highly mobile QB, can that be translated to the NFL?...
