Eagles hired 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble as vice president of player personnel.
A hot name in GM searches this offseason, Gamble will instead make a lateral move to Philadelphia. Considered a big factor in the 49ers' recent success in the draft and free agency, Gamble will work very closely with GM Howie Roseman and coach Chip Kelly. It's a big get for Roseman, whose evaluation skills have been questioned. It's an equally big loss for the 49ers. Wed, Feb 13, 2013 02:09:00 PM

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the Eagles were "onto" Texas A&M's Kevin Sumlin in their coaching search after initially being turned down by Chip Kelly.

It's a non-story now, but confirmation Sumlin is viewed as a legitimate NFL coaching prospect, and will be pursued again in 2014 if the Aggies have another strong season in the SEC. A Bob Stoops disciple, Sumlin has been coaching in the college ranks since 1988, but has no NFL experience.

Eagles hired former Browns coach Pat Shurmur as offensive coordinator.

It's an extremely odd fit, as the punt-happy Shurmur is the antithesis to everything Chip Kelly stands for, at least on paper. Shurmur has 15 years of NFL experience, however, and spent 2002-08 with the Eagles. Shurmur should be a competent guiding hand for Kelly as he makes the adjustment to the big leagues, but won't be the architect of Philly's offense. Kelly is expected to serve as his own play-caller.

Chip Kelly's contract with the Eagles is for five years and $32.5 million, making him one of the highest-paid coaches in the NFL.

The deal is worth $6.5 million annually and obviously was the main factor in Kelly's decision to leave Oregon and make the jump to the NFL. The Eagles are banking on Kelly's creative offensive mind to help turn around a franchise that hasn't won a playoff game since 2008. Kelly has no previous NFL experience.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that ex-Browns coach Pat Shurmur is expected to join the Eagles as offensive coordinator.

It's a bit of an odd fit. Chip Kelly will obviously be calling the shots in Philadelphia's uptempo, exciting offense, while Shurmur has showed little creativity in his stints as offensive play-caller with the Rams and Browns over the past four seasons. Shurmur and Kelly have no previous connection, but Shurmur spent ten seasons in The City of Brotherly Love from 1999-2008. Shurmur, an old-fashioned West Coast offensive mind, figures to be a background presence on Kelly's staff.

Chip Kelly's Oregon Ducks averaged an offensive snap every 20.9 seconds in 2012.

To put that into context, the Patriots ran the quickest offense in the NFL, snapping the ball every 24.9 seconds. The Pats offense was inspired in part by Kelly's. It's doubtful Kelly's pace will be quite so breakneck during his first NFL campaign — particularly in he ends up sticking with lead-footed Nick Foles — but there's no doubt he'll be at or near the top of the league in pace. There's no guarantee the Eagles will be better in 2013, but they will be infinitely more watchable.

Eagles hired Chip Kelly as head coach, signing him to a five-year contract.

Owner Jeffery Lurie and GM Howie Roseman pull a rabbit out of their hat, landing their No. 1 choice ten days after he reportedly "decided to stay at Oregon." Expect the contract numbers and organizational power to be gargantuan, but it's fair to wonder if Kelly received new information regarding potential NCAA sanctions in the last week. Regardless, the Eagles' next trick will be finding a quarterback to play in Kelly's innovative, up-tempo, spread scheme. It's already been suggested that incumbent Nick Foles will not fit. Perhaps Michael Vick, previously expected to be cut within the next couple weeks, will be willing to return with a massive pay-cut.

The Philadelphia Inquirer suggests Ken Whisenhunt is the Eagles' No. 2 choice behind Seahawks DC Gus Bradley.

Of the 11 candidates the Eagles have talked to, only Bradley has had a second interview. But he is still meeting with the Jags on Wednesday, leaving the Eagles scrambling for backup plans. Whisenhunt, who was fired by the Cardinals after a 5-11 season, reportedly had a good talk with the Eagles' brass during a short interview Monday. He's not considered a candidate in Jacksonville -- the only team besides the Eagles and Cardinals without a coach right now.

CSN Philadelphia considers the Eagles' coaching search a "four-horse race" between Seahawks DC Gus Bradley, Ken Whisenhunt, Brian Billick and Lovie Smith, with Bradley remaining the favorite.

However, reporter Geoff Mosher believes Whiz is "right there" behind Bradley. The only non-retread of the group, Bradley is the most intriguing name after helping transform the Seahawks defense into one of the league's best, but Whisenhunt is a strong fallback option.

The Eagles will not interview Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians for their head-coaching vacancy on Tuesday.

It remains to be seen if an interview will take place at a later date, but as of now an interview "has not been scheduled." It was reported over the weekend that Arians would be making the rounds and hopes to have his fate settled by the end of this week. Philadelphia interviewed Ken Whisenhunt and Jay Gruden on Monday and have conducted ten interviews in total, so far.

The Eagles interviewed former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt for their head-coaching vacancy Monday.

The Eagles also interviewed Bengals OC Jay Gruden on Monday. According to CSN Philadelphia, the Eagles have conducted 10 known interviews. The Eagles' search is long past drawn out, though Whisenhunt wouldn't be a terrible get at this stage in the game. However, we doubt he's the favorite, or that owner Jeffrey Lurie and GM Howie Roseman are done turning up new candidates in their thus far futile attempt to replace Andy Reid.

CSN Philly reports the Eagles interviewed ex-Ravens head coach Brian Billick for their head-coaching vacancy last Monday.

The timing of the report is interesting, as Billick is currently announcing Sunday's NFC Divisional round game on FOX. The Super Bowl XXXV winner has drawn just cursory interest around the league since being let go by the Ravens after the 2007 season. Although Billick's background is on offensive side of the ball, his Baltimore defenses often carried the weight of the offense on its back. CSN Philly's Reuben Frank is told Billick is "considered among the leading candidates" for the position.

SI's Pete Thamel reports Brian Kelly has decided to turn down the Eagles' head coaching job, and remain at Notre Dame.

There had been talk in recent days that Kelly's interest in the Eagles was legitimate, but it reeked of a leverage play from day one. Already due a big raise after taking the Fighting Irish to the national title game in his third year on the job, Kelly's coffers should only be filled further following his NFL flirtation. The Eagles have now attempted to lure each of Kelly, Bill O'Brien and Chip Kelly from the college ranks, only to be spurned each time. According to CSN Philadelphia, Seahawks DC Gus Bradley is now the Eagles' "top candidate."

Citing a source with knowledge of the situation, Profootballtalk.com reports that the Eagles want Notre Dame's Brian Kelly to be their next head coach.

An Adam Schefter report late in the week hinted that Kelly had genuine interest in the Eagles, and PFT's report indicates the feeling is mutual. Although the Eagles have lined up a lengthy list of candidates and interviewees, it now appears as though Kelly is atop the list. Kelly is scheduled to meet with his Notre Dame players on Monday, at which point it'll be interesting to see whether he'll make any promises about his 2013 coaching whereabouts.

The Eagles will interview Colts OC Bruce Arians for their head-coaching vacancy on Tuesday.

Arians joins Seattle's Gus Bradley, Notre Dame's Brian Kelly, and Cincinnati's Jay Gruden as candidates for the job. Indianapolis' 60-year-old offensive coordinator has also set up interviews with the Bears and Chargers and hopes to have his fate determined by the end of next week.
