With the Philadelphia Eagles’ heading towards dumpster fire status at this point, head coach Chip Kelly is expected to get fired at the end of the season.
The good news for Kelly is that there might be a college job already waiting for him.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport says that USC is interested in Kelly.
“My understanding is that after the ugly loss to the Lions in front of the entire country, Chip Kelly was despondent, frustrated and feeling the heat for the first time, aware it seems that his job status may actually be in doubt after grabbing all the power this past offseason. That said, he seems intent on fixing this issue, understands that his back is against the wall and is looking at making some possible changes with a little mini break after theThanksgiving day game.
“But at the end of the season he is gonna face a decision,” Rapoport continued. “It seems it is a little bit of a longshot for it to come from another NFL team, but USC still maintains interest in Chip Kelly. It seems like they will at least touch base with him after the season. He is gonna have to make a call on what his future holds after this season with the Eagles ends.”
The only NFL team right now that’s interested in Kelly is the Tennessee Titans.
“Do not discount the Tennessee Titans, especially if Kelly did not want personnel control, which of course would seem to be a huge ask considering what happened in Philly this year,” Rapoport said.
