However, moving along on the assumption that Reid will be shown the door on Monday, Alex Marvez of Fox Sports takes a look at 12 head coaching candidates this offseason. For each candidate, Marvez links him to a team(s). The Eagles were only linked to one candidate and it was a name that has become a household name in the Delaware Valley: Chip Kelly. Marvez writes,
“Kelly’s lightning-fast offensive approach and innovative schemes have helped revolutionize college football. Some of those same concepts are being used successfully by NFL teams, most notably the New England Patriots. Kelly has a 45-7 record in four seasons at Oregon. Potential NCAA sanctions because of a recruiting scandal could hasten Kelly’s departure to the pros.
Potential fit: Kelly’s name is being closely associated with Philadelphia, although he is expected to have multiple suitors.”
