The Eagles have reportedly reached a deal with Chip Kelly to become their new head coach.

According to an ESPN report, the Philadelphia Eagles have hired former Oregon Head Coach Chip Kelly. Kelly interviewed for the position following Oregon’s season but did not reach an agreement and appeared poised to stay at Oregon for another run at a national title. All that has changed and Kelly will now bring his innovative offensive mind and charismatic personality to Philadelphia.

CSNPhilly.com reported this quote from Eagles’ Owner Jeffrey Lurie regarding Chip Kelly:

“Chip Kelly will be an outstanding head coach for the Eagles,” Eagles owner Jeff Lurie said. “He has a brilliant football mind. He motivates his team with his actions as well as his words. He will be a great leader for us and will bring a fresh, energetic approach to our team.”

More to come…
