Report: Chip Kelly Down To Eagles, Oregon

The Eagles’ top NFL competitor in the Chip Kelly sweepstakes just reportedly bowed out of the race.

The Bills, who also had some interest in Kelly, have since hired Syracuse coach Doug Marrone.

Now it becomes a question of whether Kelly’s second flirtation with the NFL will end much like the first one. Last season he originally decided to coach the Bucs before pulling out and returning to Oregon for the 2012 season. What makes the situation different this time around is the fact that the program might be facing sanctions from the NCAA. This  could be the time for Kelly to move on.

If he does, Philadelphia is looking more and more like a potential landing spot.

The Eagles had a lengthy interview with Kelly Saturday and left Arizona Sunday to meet with Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.
