Brian Kelly just announced that he will stay at Notre Dame.
The Eagles met with Gus Bradley today, but we have no idea how that interview went. He would seem to be the front runner at this point, but that was based on perception. The interview is huge. Mike McCoy didn’t interview well and is off the team’s radar. Most people expect Bradley to do well in the meeting, but only time will tell.
Jay Gruden and Bruce Arians are set up for meetings in the next few days. Could there be any other candidates?
A lot of people still want the team to talk to Jon Gruden. I have no idea if that will happen. You wonder how Lovie Smith’s interview went. I would like the Eagles to consider Pete Carmichael, but they may feel he’s just not ready.
The Eagles were really fascinated by the idea of hiring a college coach. Are there any more guys of interest? Here are some names, but I have no idea if the Eagles will still pursue this angle.
Charlie Strong – Louisville
Al Golden – Miami
Kevin Sumlin – Texas A&M
None of these guys has the track record of Chip Kelly or
Dennis Brian Kelly. None has the NFL ties of Doug Marrone. These guys would truly be a roll of the dice.
Let’s hope Gus nailed his interview.
