The Philadelphia Eagles have decided to part ways with head coach and personnel director Chip Kelly, just days after the team was knocked out of playoff contention.
Philadelphia is just 6-9 this year after winning 10 games in each of Kelly’s first two years at the helm, only making the playoffs during his first season. Owner Jeffrey Lurie decided it was time to go in a different direction.
He said in a letter to fans: "I spent the last three seasons evaluating the many factors involved in our performance as a team. As I watched this season unfold, I determined that it was time to make a change."
