BREAKING – Sources: Oregon coach Chip Kelly will be the new coach of the Philadelphia Eagles (via @mortreport)
— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) January 16, 2013
Only a day after reports came out that the Eagles were all but settled on
Carolina Panthers Seattle Seahawks Defensive Coordinator Gus Bradley, Chris Mortensen reports that they have hired Oregon coach Chip Kelly. It had already come out that Kelly was going back to Oregon and was not interested in the NFL, which leads us to believe that they are going to pay him a whole shit ton of money. It also leads us to believe that the Eagles must have really not liked Gus Bradley for his second interview to cause such panic that Jeffery Lurie went back to the guy that turned them down and worked on him again.
Oh, and we’ll offer an advance thank you to Lurie on behalf of the Daily News headline writers for hiring a guy named Chip. It really lends itself to puns.
UPDATE: Updated because we didn’t know shit ’bout Gus Bradley. Also, here’s some stats.
