Philadelphia Eagles and Chip Kelly "sick of each other"

By Alex Butler

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 24 (UPI) -- Philadelphia Eagles fans are getting familiar with watching top-end talent leave under coach Chip Kelly, but now it could be Kelly catching a flight.

According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, the Eagles and Kelly are "sick of each other."


"I think the momentum and signs seem to be piling up against a Chip [Kelly] return to Philadelphia," Schefter said Tuesday on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "I think both sides are sick of each other. I think the fans are tired of him. I think he's tired of the situation there. That's just my read from afar."

"I just think that Chip Kelly, if given a choice, might be comfortable elsewhere," Schefter said.

Kelly has two years left on his five-year deal with the Eagles.

Schefter did not reveal any sources, but Jimmy Kempski, an Eagles writer for agreed with his words.

"Based on conversations I've had, while certainly not concrete information by any stretch, I do not believe Schefter is merely spit-balling," Kempski tweeted.

Kelly, 51, led the Eagles to 10-6 records in 2013 and 2014, before the tumbled to 4-6 this season.

The Eagles ranked in the top five in the NFL in passing yards and points in his first two seasons, but rank No. 8 in yards and 15 in points this season.

Kelly had a 46-7 record in four seasons coaching at Oregon.
