Fans of the Philadelphia Eagles were rather excited to learn that the team had hired the former Oregon coach.
The Philadelphia Eagles did their dance with Oregon Ducks coach Chip Kelly earlier this month. Kelly went back to Oregon and the Eagles kept on looking for a new head coach to replace Andy Reid. You can imagine the surprise when news broke early Wednesday afternoon that the Eagles had hired Kelly for the head coaching job.
Fans over at Bleeding Green Nation, SB Nations Eagles blog, were excited, to say the least.
