ESPN – Chip Kelly, who was likely offered the Eagles’ head coaching job on Saturday night, has decided to return for a fifth season as head football coach at the University of Oregon, a league source told CSNPhilly.com late Sunday evening. Kelly, who began the weekend as the top candidate for head coaching vacancies with both the Browns and Eagles, met throughout the day Saturday with Eagles brass in Phoenix after meeting with the Browns on Friday. Adding intrigue to the process is the fractured relationship between Lurie and Browns President Joe Banner, Lurie’s boyhood friend, first hire when he joined the Eagles 18 years ago and top executive here until his ouster in June. This is the second January in a row that Kelly has interviewed for an NFL position, only to return to Oregon, where his teams have gone 36-4 the last three years. The team has also announced plans to interview Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, whose teams were scheduled to play on Sunday.
Jackass. Wouldn’t have worked anyway.
