Perhaps the worst kept secret in football, the Eagles are interested in bringing in the wildly successful college coach to invigorate the franchise after back-to-back disappointing seasons under Andy Reid.
Kelly is thought to be one of the top coaching prospects to come out of the college ranks in quite some time, in the same vein as Jim Harbaugh and Nick Saban. During his time in Oregon, Kelly has a remarkable 45-7 record.
The Ducks head coach has never won a national championship at Oregon, but has come close on many occasions, most notably losing in the BCS Championship Game of 2010 against the Auburn Tigers and Cam Newton.
The last time the Eagles hired a head coach from college was 1976, when Dick Vermeil was brought in.
