PHILADELPHIA, PA -- After interviewing at least 11 candidates, the Philadelphia Eagles have hired Chip Kelly as their new coach after he originally chose to stay at Oregon.
He replaces Andy Reid, who was fired on Dec. 31 after a 4-12 season
Philadelphia has won just 12 games the past two years, after winning the NFC East in 2010.
Kelly was 46-7 in four years at Oregon. He interviewed with the Eagles, Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills after leading the Ducks to a victory over Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl. But he opted to remain at Oregon before changing his mind.
