This morning, it was announced and confirmed that the Oregon Ducks head coach, Chip Kelly, would be the new Philadelphia Eagles head coach.This news was very surprising, being that he announced he was staying with the Ducks less than two weeks ago.
Kelly is leaving Eugene, Oregon after piling up a very impressive 46-7 record in his four seasons as Oregon's head coach. He also led the Ducks to a record-tying four consecutive BCS appearances.
Kelly inherits an Eagles team that is low on confidence and hope, but one that has an abundance of weapons. The Eagles team quit on their 2012 season, but Philadelphia fans should be happy with the effort and execution they get from their team in the 2013 season. Expect a new high-powered offense and a shift of power in the NFC East.
Now to the important part. Here are the biggest winners and losers of the Chip Kelly hire.
