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 CSNPhilly.com. “I’m very, very excited to be here. I’m not entertaining anything like that. I’m here.”
