Chip Kelly named Eagles head coach

Chip Kelly to the Eagles? Yes, really. According to multiple sources, the Oregon head coach bolted for the city of brotherly love this morning. The school confirmed the news on their official Twitter page.

Just 10 days ago, it appeared the Kelly to Philly rumors were just that—rumors. Additionally, there was word of Nike owner Phil Knight’s late plea to keep Kelly around.

Something must have occurred in the last few days because 48 hours ago, he was still recruiting.

As one astute observer noted, “NFL has crazier plot twists than any episode of 24 ever did. Ultimate reality show.”
