Chip Kelly Not Off of Phillys Radar Just Yet, and Other Interview Updates

Chip Kelly Not Off of Phillys Radar Just Yet, and Other Interview Updates

Reports of Chip Kelly accepting Cleveland’s head coaching
job began leaking in on Friday evening, before another NFL team even had the
chance to meet with him, but those might have been greatly exaggerated. The
spread offense mastermind still plans to meet with the Eagles on Saturday.

Kelly also went on to meet with Buffalo last night.

That being said, the Browns could still be the favorites to
nab the University of Oregon coach. Their meeting was said to last five hours,
and it kind of sounds like the organization made a preliminary offer of sorts. Plus,
following the Fiesta Bowl Kelly remarked he would prefer to reach a decision on
a job quickly – at least for the Eagles’ part in this, their search seems to be
on a more deliberate schedule.

I could see Jeff Lurie being turned off by Chip’s apparent priority
that the process be expedited, or simply not so infatuated with the guy to
cancel upcoming interviews. Guess we’ll have to wait and see, but the end result appears to be inevitable.

Speaking of which, the Eagles requested and received permission on Friday
to meet with two more potential candidates. Bruce Arians, who served
as the Indianapolis Colts’ interim head coach for most of the season, and Gus
Bradley, defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks are free to speak to
the Birds’ brass once their respective teams are eliminated from the
postseason.

Adam Schefter is also reporting the team will request
permission
from the Cincinnati Bengals for offensive coordinator Jay Gruden.
Again, that’s Jay, not Jon – sorry. The Daily News also has Syracuse University's Doug Marrone on the list.

So unless Lurie falls in love with Kelly or Mike McCoy this
weekend, it seems we could be in for another week of this stuff at least – not that
that’s a bad thing. Considering the far-reaching impact this will have on the
franchise for years to come, I prefer the calculated approach of talking to
multiple coaches as opposed to locking in on one.

In other words, I won’t be sad if Chip Kelly forces himself
to Cleveland.

Brooks' 4 TDs leads Penn by Lehigh 65-47 in 60th meeting

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Karekin Brooks rushed for 268 yards with three touchdowns on 29 carries and Pennsylvania outlasted Lehigh 65-47 on Saturday in the 60th meeting between the defending champions of the Patriot and Ivy leagues.

Brooks became the 12th Quaker to rush for 200-plus yards in a game and moved into second on Penn's single-game rushing record, behind Terrance Stokes' 272 yards against Princeton in 1993. Brooks also threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Ryslik early in the fourth quarter, which made it 56-35.

Penn (2-0) scored consecutive touchdowns 1-minute, 9 seconds apart late in the second quarter to establish a two-touchdown lead it maintained during a second half that saw the teams trade scores on virtually every possession.

Will Fischer-Colbrie finished 13 of 20 for 235 yards and three touchdowns, connecting with Christian Pearson on a 43-yard scoring strike, Logan Sharp from 26 yards and Nicholas Bokun late in the fourth from 21 yards out.

Lehigh (0-4) was led by Brad Mayes, who went 26 of 40 for 444 yards with four touchdowns, but also suffered two interceptions.
