The Eagles announced on Friday coach Chip Kelly will oversee the team's player personnel department.
An internal power struggle came to a head when ex-VP of player personnel Tom Gamble was fired by GM Howie Roseman on Tuesday. Gamble was brought over from San Francisco when Kelly was hired, and his firing was thought to be a power grab by Roseman. It did not work. In the aftermath, Roseman was "promoted" to Executive VP of Football Operations, where he will be limited to contract negotiations and cap management. Kelly now has almost complete control over the shaping of the Eagles' 53-man roster, and will lead the search for Gamble's replacement. Current Eagles assistant director of player personnel Ed Marynowitz is the early favorite to replace Gamble. Jan 3 - 9:59 AM

Eagles coach Chip Kelly insists the NCAA investigation into Oregon had "no impact" on his decision to leave for the NFL.

The Ducks were slapped with three years of probation Wednesday, while Kelly was handed an 18-month "show-cause penalty." It means any NCAA team that hired Kelly in the next 18 months would have to "show cause" to the NCAA why they should be allowed to do so. Kelly didn't leave behind nearly as big of a mess as Pete Carroll did at USC, but he certainly skipped town at just the right time. Provided Kelly's Eagles tenure doesn't end after just one season, he should have little trouble getting another NCAA job in the future.
