Former Oregon Ducks head coach Chip Kelly has had a change of heart and is now the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.
It appeared that Chip Kelly’s NFL head coaching future had been dashed, when on January 7, Kelly informed the Eagles that he was staying in the college ranks. However, on Wednesday Kelly had a change of heart and accepted the job. Last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offered Kelly their vacant head coaching position, which he eventually turned down.
Kelly has built one of the most prolific offenses in college football. Since becoming Oregon’s head coach in 2009, Kelly has guided the Ducks to four straight BCS bowl births and oversaw an offense that was 2nd points and 3rd in rushing yards at 49.6 points per game and 315.2 yards per game.
Kelly has a 46.7 record as Oregon Ducks head coach.
