The Eagles’ head-coaching search doesn’t seem to have an overriding plan. Unless, of course, the plan is to help current college coaches get raises to stay where they currently are. That’s what happened with Penn State coach Bill O’Brien and Oregon coach Chip Kelly, both of whom interviewed with the Eagles before opting to stay put. Given the manner in which the flirtation between Brian Kelly and Philly emerged, it appeared that he’d quickly parlay the interest into more money.
