Chip Kelly has brought in a new staff, including new offensive and defensive coordinators.
Kelly brought in Pat Shurmur, who was fired by the Cleveland Browns after being the head coach for just two seasons.
Shurmur went 9-23 with the Browns.
He has a lot of experience under his belt and was with the Eagles coaching staff from 1999-2008, which was one of the best runs in Philadelphia Eagles history.
He was a tight end and quarterback coach during his tenure with the Eagles.
Kelly also added Billy Davis, who was a linebacker coach with the Cleveland Browns last season, to run the defense.
People have the right to question the hire based on his recent track record.
Davis has been a defensive coordinator twice. He was the defensive coordinator with the San Francisco 49ers (2005-06) and with the Arizona Cardinals (2009-10).
He lasted just one season both times at the defensive coordinator position and moved on the following year to new teams as a linebacker position coach.
The Eagles' defense is going to be a mystery in the months leading up to the 2013-14 season.
On the other hand, Kelly seemed to really hit it off with Davis, so we'll see what happens.
Davis will most likely switch to a 3-4 defense scheme, and there are questions on whether cornerbacks Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique_Rodgers-Cromartie will still be with the Eagles when the season starts.
An interesting move that Chip Kelly also did when hiring was bring in five of his assistant coaches from Oregon, such as defensive line coach Jerry Azzinaro.
Bringing in his assistants from Oregon will make for a smoother transition with the Eagles, because these Oregon coaches will know what Kelly is talking about and what he expects.
