Chip Kelly Is Staying in Philadelphia

Eagles_Chip_Kelly_2013When Bobby Petrino made the jump from college to the Atlanta Falcons, he left after less than one season to return to the collegiate ranks to become the head coach at Arkansas.

Chip Kelly is not planning to follow in Petrino’s footsteps. Lane Kiffin’s firing has opened up the coaching job at USC and that’s led some to put Kelly’s name on a list of candidates. The Eagles coach said he didn’t want to talk hypotheticals when asked Thursday about his response should the Trojans come calling, but eventually came up with a stronger response.

“I’m the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles,” Kelly said, via Geoff Mosher of “I’m very, very excited to be here. I’m not entertaining anything like that. I’m here.”
