According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN.com:
Eagles make it official by announcing Chip Kelly as their head coach. Owner Jeffrey Lurie gets the man he wanted all along.— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) January 16, 2013
Given the appeal of Kelly's consistent success with the Oregon Ducks, it's not surprising to see him make this leap.
The Ducks had won three Pac-12 titles and went to four consecutive BCS bowls, including one national-championship appearance. Given that the Eagles were in dire need of a fresh look, Kelly's acquisition offers a new era of excitement.
Philly may even get 100 alternative-jersey styles as a welcoming gift.
