Chip Kelly on Returning to College: ‘I Have a Job’
As the Philadelphia Eagles continue to struggle and lose meaningful football games in November, there seems to be only one constant to point the finger at: Chip Kelly.
Numerous universities have been rumored to be interested in Kelly since the beginning of the season and it's been a perfect fit with the Eagles scuffling along at 4-6.
According to Dave Birkett of The Detroit Free Press, Kelly responded to any speculation this afternoon while on a conference call with the Detroit media in anticipation of their Thanksgiving Day game.
"Oh, I have a job," Kelly said.
Questions like this surely will not go away if the Eagles continue to spiral and fail to win a mediocre NFC East while having a mostly healthy football team.
Plenty of high profile jobs will be available in college once the season is over, Kelly will have many options to choose from if things dont work out at the pro level.
Kelly has two years remaining on his 5-year contract after this season.
