ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentioned during an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio that “signs seem to be piling up” against Chip Kelly returning as the Eagles head coach in 2016.
According to Schefter, “both sides are sick of each other.”
“I think the momentum and signs seem to be piling up against a Chip return to Philadelphia,” Schefter said. “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.”
The Eagles’ 2015 season hasn’t gone as many anticipated it would, as they’ve gotten off to a 4-6 start and are coming off of a poor performance at home to the Buccaneers.
The Detroit media asked Kelly on Tuesday if he’s ever consider returning to coach a college team, but he dismissed the idea, saying: “I have a job,” per Dave Birkett.
Kelly’s name came up as a speculative option for the USC head-coaching job, but he previously shot down that idea.
Philadelphia gave Kelly full control of the team’s 53-man roster and made other changes to their front office structure. However, Kelly’s moves in free agency have largely backfired, which has only increased the amount of scrutiny from fans and media.
Of course, there’s still time for the Eagles to get things turned around and make the playoffs, considering that they’re just one game back in the loss column to the Giants.
We’ll have more regarding Kelly and his future with the Eagles as the news is available.
