Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE
Yes, Kelly is an Irish surname.
The Eagles have now swung three times at college coaches, with Brian Kelly joining Chip Kelly and Bill O'Brien as simply the most Irish of the many Irish who won't be taking over in Philly. (Swinging three times and missing in Ireland is a traditional signal for the onset of the morning's first happy hour.)
Thus, the recommended candidates list for the Eagles from here on out:
- Houston O'Nutt
- Lee Corso (resume attached)
- Houston McNutt
- Mike MacIntyre
- Houston MacNutt
- Chris Petersen (via potatoes)
- Europe Houston Nutt
- Tom O'Brien
- Dublin Nutt
- Mick Saban
