A Taste Of Chip Kelly

One name you’re going to hear mentioned quite a bit when the topic of NFL job openings is discussed in the coming months is Oregon’s Chip Kelly.

As conversation around Philadelphia continues to center around who’s going to replace Andy Reid, it seems appropriate to bring you information on potential candidates from time to time.
