The Philadelphia Eagles are one team that is interested in the Notre Dame coach and, not only have they shown interest, they have already interviewed Kelly. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting that the Eagles and Kelly met on Tuesday after the game to talk about the vacant head coaching position.
“Kelly met with the Eagles on Tuesday, and there was mutual interest after the interview, according to league sources. Kelly left the country after meeting with the Eagles and could not be reached for comment.
The Eagles and Kelly have agreed to revisit talks when he returns this weekend, according to league sources.”
Kelly has posted a 28-11 record in South Bend while leading Notre Dame to a perfect regular season before falling in the National Championship Game. Overall, he is 199-67-2 as a head coach at the college ranks. He has no previous NFL experience but the 51 year old Massachusetts native does not seem like the type to back down from a challenge. It will be interesting to see what the Eagles do this weekend when Kelly returns and what happens with Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley.
