Had this been any other year, Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly may have been able to surprise two fans by showing up to their wedding. Unfortunately for the couple, the 2014 NFL draft will prevent the coach from attending.

Thomas Froschle and Maryanne Goslee decided to send Kelly an invitation to their May wedding:

Kelly was at least kind enough to let the couple know that he has a prior engagement.

The NFL draft usually takes place during April. However, this year's draft will start on May 8 and conclude on May 10. The wedding was reportedly scheduled before the draft was moved back.
