NFL News: Andy Reid Helped Eagles Hire Chip Kelly

USATSI_8283966_154224518_lowresAfter apparently turning down the job to become the new head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, Chip Kelly ultimately decided to leave Oregon in favor of the Eagles this week and surprised a lot of people in the process.

Kelly appeared to be content heading back to Oregon for a fifth year with the Ducks, but had a sudden change of heart that no one saw coming.

Reportedly, former Eagles head coach Andy Reid played a part in Kelly’s decision to accept the job. Kelly thanked Reid for his advice recently via ESPN.com:

“One person I want to thank, in terms of advice in this whole thing, is Andy Reid,” said Kelly, who decided to leave Oregon after going 46-7 in four seasons. “And the fact that Andy reached out to me and told me about his experience here just told me what this organization is all about. There’s not a classier guy. When Andy texted me (Wednesday) when I accepted the job, I told him I had really, really, really big shoes to fill. And in typical Andy fashion he said, ‘Just be yourself and you’ll be fine.’ So I publicly just want to thank Andy, because that really spoke to me about what this organization is all about.”

Of all the people to lead Kelly in the direction of Philadelphia, Reid was thought to be the last of many that gave advice to the former Oregon head coach.

Although Reid was let go by the Eagles after 14 seasons following the end of a disappointing year, the longtime head coach is obviously still fond of the organization in Philadelphia.

The fact that Reid would go out of his way to give Kelly advice about the job that he had for the for almost a decade and a half is a sign of how close he was with the organization and owner Jeffrey Lurie. A true testament to Reid and the Eagles organization that the two can part ways and still have mutual respect.
