Kelly turned down Coughlin to stay at New Hampshire

Giants coach Tom Coughlin has to try to beat Chip Kelly twice a year now.

But in 2006, he tried to get the Eagles head coach to join his staff.

Coughlin told reporters at the owners meetings that he offered Kelly a job as offensive quality control coach, a job which Kelly turned down, staying at New Hampshire so he could continue to work with players directly.

I was very tempted to go, because I have the utmost respect for Coach,” Kelly said, via Gary Myers of the New York Daily News. “The only reason I didn’t take the job is because I wasn’t going to be a position coach. That’s what I was going to miss if I left New Hampshire.”

Kelly was only there one more season, before going to Oregon as offensive coordinator in 2007. By 2009, he was head coach, and two years later, he turned down a chance to coach the Buccaneers.

It was a risky move for the young coach, but his path has crossed with Coughlin’s quickly enough.

  1. It amazes me how arrogant ‘Skins fans have suddenly become off of one division championship coupled with a playoff loss and, oh yeah, your star QB is coming off of a major knee injury.. Stop trolling on articles that have absolutely nothing to do with your team, please.

  2. No one cares about this. Absolutely no one.

    My Grandmother might care; she lives in New Hampshire.
    …’cept I’m 1000% sure she has no idea who Chip Kelly is. And he’s no longer there, anyway.

    You’re right, no one cares about this.

  4. “logicalvoicesays” is a little insecure clown. He (she) goes by many names on here and never writes anything that can be interpreted as knowledge. We are all playing into this trap and constant plea for attention. Ignore him!

    While I am not a fan of the Redskins; it would be a huge insult to infer that ALL Redskins fans are representative by this moron’s statements. I lived in the DC area and can tell you that their Fanbase on average is actually pretty smart football people. I even understand their enthusiasm over a resurrected franchise and the excitment RGIII brings, even if it is overzealous at times.

  5. I have a hard time believing that Kelly was “a young coach” six years ago. As for Coughlin, I don’t think he was ever a “young coach”. He has always looked like he’s running on formaldehyde.

  6. My fellow Giants’ fans are pi$$ing me off more than the Skins’ trolls. QUIT FEEDING THEM! I don’t even read their garbage let alone condone them by thumbing them down or, sheesh…reposting their garbage. IGNORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR THEMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!

    The Redskins are the superior team. #Weareincontrol

    Fix your QB situation and then you may speak… back to the cellar you go now.

    A troll complaining about other trolls LOL… Back to the sewer you go N.Y rat.

  9. Logicalvoicesays- if you are such a huge Redskins (soon to be name changed) fan, why are you commenting on every story linked to the Eagles? The Skins had one good season in the last 10 years and you are ready to claim dynasty. Find something better to do.
