Chip Kelly Decides to Stay at Oregon
Sources are telling CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora that Chip Kelly has decided to stay at Oregon rather than accepting the Eagles' offer.
The Eagles will most-likely turn their attention to one of these candidates: Bengals OC Jay Gurden, Broncos OC Mike McCoy, Seahawks DC Gus Bradley, Falcons ST coach Keith Armstrong, Falcons DC Mike Nolan, and Colts OC Bruce Arians.
Or quite possibly another candidate that hasn't been reveled just yet like Holy Spirit grad Greg Roman of the 49ers.
The Browns reportedly walked away from Chip Kelly because they didn't believe his heart was "100 percent into leaving Oregon - so this news tonight doesn't come as much of a shock.
Keep in mind Kelly has come close to signing with an NFL team for a second consecutive year only to have noted Oregon booster and Nike co-founder Phil Knight throw more money at him to stay with the Ducks. Last year Kelly agreed to coach the Tampa Bay Buccaneers only to change his mind at the last minute.
Philadelphia took its coaching search committee to Denver to interview Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Sunday after a lengthy meeting with Kelly on Saturday night in Arizona.
