NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Chip Kelly is done in Philadelphia after only three years on the job.
The Eagles announced the firing of Kelly Tuesday evening after the Eagles slumped to a 6-9 record after back to back 10 win seasons.
Kelly had massive success at Oregon before jumping to the NFL. At Oregon he coached Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota for two seasons which has many in NFL circles pointing to a reunion.
The Titans fired Ken Whisenhunt mid-season and are in search of their next head coach. Mike Mularkey is the team’s interim coach and has said he wants the job. We should all learn his fate Monday after the Titans play their final regular season at Indianapolis Sunday.
Fox Sports Jay Glazer reports he spoke with Kelly who told him his desire is to stay in the NFL.
Kelly reportedly coveted Mariota in the last NFL Draft trying to package players and picks to get him to Philadelphia. Views on a reunion range, but sources tell me it is unlikely and not to jump to any conclusions.
The executive vice president of football operations, will assist him in the search for a new coach.
