Chip Kelly has one of the NFL’s biggest coaching staffs. In total, he has 23 assistants who serve under him.


They came from big-time colleges, from around the NFL and even from a high school athletic director’s office. They range in age from 25 to 70.


At every practice, whether or not pads are required, Eagles defensive linemen spend at least a portion of the session relentlessly throwing their bodies into a blocking sled.


They know exactly what every glance means, every hand gesture, every silent stare.

They speak Chip Kelly’s language, and they know what he wants before he even says anything.
