Tostitos Fiesta Bowl - Oregon v Kansas State

No, this isn’t an older post we accidentally published: the Eagles have, on Wednesday, January 16, 2013, hired Chip Kelly away from Oregon,’s Mike Freeman confirms.

An announcement from the team is expected soon on the stunning news that was first reported by Chris Mortensen of ESPN.

Kelly flirted with Philadelphia earlier in the offseason, but ultimately turned down multiple NFL advances in order to return to Oregon. Or so we thought?

It’s absolutely stunning news to see Kelly flip-flop like this and it will raise plenty of speculation about the way the NCAA views Oregon’s short-term future with respect to sanctions as well as whether or not Kelly can be trusted to stick to a decision in the NFL.

There will also be an interesting debate about whether or not Kelly was given enough personnel power.
