The search is finally over! Chip Kelly has been named the new head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. The University of Oregon coach was considered among the team’s top choices by owner Jeff Lurie but announced after his interview with the Birds that he was staying put. Well, it looks like those plans have changed. It may be due to the fact that the University of Oregon was facing NCAA sanctions. Chip Kelly will be replacing Andy Reid, who served 14 years as the Eagles head coach. Check out the entire press conference from yesterday introducing Chip Kelly as the team’s new head coach.
