Oregon head coach Chip Kelly is headed to the Eagles, according to Chris Mortenson just now on Twitter..
"Chip Kelly is the new coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, according to league sources. No announcement yet."
Little surprised given where things were last week with him to the NFL.

Wow, kinda shocked. Do not think he is a good fit for that Franchise. This seriously boosts Shady McCoy's fantasy football value IMO. He definitely fits Kelly's system.

Wow, I thought this was over
Chip Kelly had a dream job in Oregon. Especially with Nike in his back yard. Oregon was about to become the next SC in that conference. Now he is just a little fish in a big pond. Not sure I agree with the move.
"That was Death Valley,". "That was the place where opponents' dreams come to die. Coach Les Miles after the LSU - South Carolina game.
He was recruiting Dontre Wilson in Texas last night. This morning, he's the head coach of the Eagles. Wow..
Insane. Thought Chip to the NFL was over with for this year. Guess not.
I think he had a really good thing going at Oregon. Given the state of the USC program, it is likely that the only game on the schedule that presents a roadblock to the Pac12 championship is the Stanford game. Good luck with the Redskins, Giants, and...nevermind, the Cowboys aren't scary.
"You can learn more character on the two-yard line than anywhere else in life." - Former LSU Coach and AD Paul Dietzel
Boom! Hope this increases Shadys value in fantasy as a keeper!
Exactly...they were (if they haven't already) becoming a national brand. Their inroads in Texas were pretty strong, Lyles sitaution aside. I don't think he made a wise choice.
Just as with Petey boy and USC, Chippy fled just before the hammer is about to fall on the quacky Ducks!!!!!!!

Agree. I am doubtful about how well his offense will play in the NFL, but if anyone has the personnel for it, it's the Eagles.
That's why we wander and follow La Vie Dansante...
I think this definitely means Foles will be traded and the eagles will be taking a QB pretty high to back up Vick.
Yeah, they are gonna need OL help, too.
I wonder who they will target at QB... Maybe they will keep Vick around because I doubt Foles will be their guy in this system

Vick fits pretty damn well if you ask me. They will need a backup obviously, but outside of RG3, WIlson, and Kapernick there is not a better suited QB to run that type of offense. I hear Tebow is on the Market, and he could definately run Kelly's offense.
though his system involves a lot of zone reads and QB options i just dont see him using them in the NFL as much as he did in college. Im sure he will adjust his schemes to fit a more NFL style spread attack. Especially after seeing RGIII get injured as much as he did. He's a smart coach and runs a power running, spread offense. I see him being successful but i can also see him being a huge bust in the big leagues.
