Jason Cole of B/R, citing multiple NFL sources, reports that Chip Kelly was not afraid to force his way out Philadelphia, which is what wound up happening on Tuesday.
Sources have told Cole that Kelly’s No. 1 destination is the Tennessee Titans, as he’s looking for a better quarterback situation. Of course, the Titans have Marcus Mariota, who worked with Kelly at the University of Oregon, in place as their long-term quarterback.
Cole mentions that Kelly has interest in other jobs such as the Dolphins and Browns. Kelly reportedly expects both teams to have some level of interest in him over the next few months.
The Titans have been a popular speculative option for Kelly ever since they used the No. 2 overall pick on Mariota several months ago.
Of course, there’s always a chance that Tennessee may prefer to go in a different direction with their head-coaching job.
While Kelly is well respected for his offensive system, he’s also be a lightning rod for criticism when things didn’t work out.
Since taking the Eagles’ head-coaching job back in 2013, Kelly has led them to a record of 26-21 (553. percent) including two 10-6 seasons and a playoff appearance.
We’ll have more regarding Kelly’s future and potential landing spots as the news is available.
