Adam Schefter just reported on Twitter that Chip Kelly is returning to Oregon.
I have no problem with Chip turning us down to stay out there. I do wish the news came sooner. I’ll write more on this on Monday.

The Eagles met with Broncos OC Mike McCoy today. I think the meeting lasted about 3 hours. No word on what went down. Jeff Lurie, Howie Roseman, and Don Smolenski are back in Philly tonight.
This week the team should speak to Jay Gruden and would like to speak to Gus Bradley. Seattle won, but the Eagles can still meet with him if the schedule can be worked out.

Many of you have asked about OC or DC candidates. I’m making some lists, but this would be pure guesswork. You never know how coaches are connected as friends. Bill O’Brien and Doug Marrone are friends due to time at Georgia Tech together 15 years ago. Finding connections like that isn’t easy.
I’ll put out a list in a few days.
