Chip Kelly To The Eagles

The news is official. Chip Kelly is the next coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. We try to grapple with what this means for Oregon. The Ducks should be strong in the short-term, but long term the Ducks have questions.


Mortensen: Chip Kelly to Eagles



Chip Kelly To Stay At Oregon

Chip Kelly has tested the NFL waters, and once again chosen to stay at Oregon. This was first reported moments ago by Adam Schefter.

This was further confirmed by those close to the UO Athletic Department.

Chip spent a lot of time with both Cleveland and Philadelphia, but in the end, decided to stay at Oregon. Hopefully we'll hear some more specifics of just what happened in the coming days, but for now, it's time to celebrate!


Chip Kelly no longer being considered by Cleveland

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that Chip Kelly will not be the next head coach in Cleveland.


Schroeder: Helfrich to succeed Kelly

USA Today (and former Register Guard) reporter George Schroeder reported this afternoon that offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich "could be named head coach within 72 hours of (Chip) Kelly's departure," according to a source.

The news should not come as a surprise to many Oregon fans, as Helfrich has long been the assumed coach-in-waiting behind Kelly, but was the unofficial head coach of the Ducks during the hours between Kelly accepting, then spurning the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a year ago.

Schroeder's source is quoted in a way that makes him sound optimistic, assured that Helfrich is primed to continue the system and success that Kelly has delivered at Oregon, taking the program to new heights at an astonishing pace.

To quote Schroeder's article:

"He can finish Chip's sentences," the person said of Helfrich. "He's been in that environment long enough (to succeed). It's a leap of faith but it's very similar – I'd almost argue that it was a bigger leap (promoting) Chip than with Mark.

It appears fairly obvious that Helfrich is the successor in large part for continuity's sake, and it's doubtful that most Oregon fans consider that a bad thing. To quote Schroeder's source one more time:

"I don't think anybody wants to see this change happen," the person said. "But if it's gonna happen I don't think anybody has concern with (promoting Helfrich)."
