Eagles Coaching Search: Moving on from Chip Kelly
Byron Hetzler-USA TODAY Sports

The rumors started to trickle out on Sunday and became more definitive Sunday night: Chip Kelly did not want to coach the Eagles and decided to return to Oregon. This is a blow to the Eagles because Kelly was at or near the top of their list, according to sources. Plus, it appeared he favored the Eagles job to the Browns job. He just didn't like it more than his current job. It's unlikely money was the issue -- the Eagles can pay -- so one must wonder if control over personnel was an issue. The Eagles have an attractive structure in which the coach reports directly to the owner -- not the general manager -- but the next coach will work in tandem with general manager Howie Roseman.
