With Chip Kelly likely out as the Philadelphia Eagles head coach after this season, speculation has already started on where he could possibly land next.
One thought was that he could go back to college and coach USC, who needed a head coach. That was until the Trojans of course named Clay Helton their new head coach on Monday.
Now 97.5 The Fanatic in Philly is reporting that the Tennessee Titans could end up trading a first round pick to the Eagles for Kelly.
Rapoport: was told on Sunday to not rule out a trade of Chip to the Tennessee Titans. He also mentioned the deal involving a 1st rd pick

The Titans of course just fired Ken Wisenhunt a few weeks ago and will obviously need to find a new head coach for next season.
Even though Kelly has pretty much ruined the Eagles, Tennessee is likely attracted to him because he coached Marcus Mariota at the University of Oregon.
I honestly don’t know why the Titans would trade a first round pick for Chip Kelly if the Eagles are going to fire him. This leads me to believe that this report is either false, or the Eagles are willing to give him one more season to turn things around.
