Chip Kelly: “I always wanted” the Eagles job

Upon arriving in Philadelphia tonight, Eagles head coach Chip Kelly told the media that he’s excited and that this is the job he always wanted.

“The challenge is what I’m excited about,” Kelly said. “This is an iconic franchise in Philadelphia.”

Kelly added the Eagles didn’t have to convince him — even though he turned down the job last week.

“I always wanted the job,” Kelly said.

I think everyone got the feeling Kelly liked the Eagles job more than any other after he met with them.  But for some reason he went back to Oregon and the Eagles didn’t give up and ultimately got the guy they wanted.
