[ESPN Insider] UPDATE: One NFL team may be getting an itchy trigger finger to potentially hire Oregon’s Chip Kelly.
“I’ve heard talk about (Eagles GM) Howie Roseman already meeting with
(Oregon head coach) Chip Kelly,” a source told ProFootballWeekly and relayed by NJ.com. “Obviously, there are no rules preventing a GM from talking to a college coach during a (school) visit.”
Wait. It gets better (or worse, depending on if you like Chip or not). Casey Matthews had some things to say about Chip.
Matthews was neither advocating for the Eagles to fire Andy Reid nor was he suggesting that Reid would be gone sometime soon. But when he was asked about Kelly – considered the most likely college coach to make the jump to the NFL — and whether he would mesh with the Philly sports world, Matthews gave the affirmative.
“The way he carries himself, the way his mindset is, I think they’ll really like him here,” the Eagles linebacker said. “He would crack jokes. When he would talk to reporters at halftime he would give the most sarcastic answers.”
