Eagles fire Chip Kelly

Chip Kelly AP

The Eagles fired Chip Kelly Tuesday night.

A short team release announced that team chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie had released Kelly. The team announced a Wednesday press conference.

Pat Shurmur will be the interim coach for Sunday’s season finale.

“We appreciate all the contributions that Chip Kelly made and wish him every success going forward,” Lurie said in the statement.

    whoa!

  3. fstpstr says: Dec 29, 2015 7:20 PM

    Dang. Thought it might happen, but not this week. Laurie made a statement by doing this.

  4. mackcarrington says: Dec 29, 2015 7:20 PM

    Something must have been said in a meeting. Not to even wait until the season ended means something blew up real fast.

  5. theheyseed says: Dec 29, 2015 7:20 PM

    I blame the Redskins.

  6. connormyboy says: Dec 29, 2015 7:20 PM

    Is anyone really surprised by this?

  14. tfarr45 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:21 PM

    Wow. Knew it was probably coming , but shocking in the swiftness.

  15. Bizzareslantpass says: Dec 29, 2015 7:21 PM

    Are you sure he didn’t just trade himself away for some random Oregon assistant coach?

  16. thames2vvvvvvrebel89130 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:21 PM

    holy cow; they just blew it up; so he goes to tennessee?

  17. mr1drful says: Dec 29, 2015 7:21 PM

    Chip outsmarted himself.

    BU$T!!!

  29. jimmymfb says: Dec 29, 2015 7:23 PM

    Well. With Pat at the helm this week, the Eagles should at least “battle”

  30. djpugh23 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:23 PM

    Queue Tennessee.
    If anyone can run that offense, it’s Marriotta.

  31. guessnot1 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:23 PM

    Hey Chip…. Remember when you said you wouldn’t mortgage the Eagles future in getting Mariotta?

  32. nyjfan111 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:23 PM

    LMAO

  33. bleedeaglegreen says: Dec 29, 2015 7:23 PM

    Bet he wouldn’t hire a GM is what killed this dead in it’s tracks. Lurie FINALLY saw the need to get a real personnel guy in & Chip balked.

  34. Mr. Wright 212 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:24 PM

    Wish he had stayed and continued outsmarting himself. But you know the Eagles wanted that extra spark and motivation heading into their Super Bowl this week.

  35. richiethegreek says: Dec 29, 2015 7:24 PM

    Stunned. Lurie actually has backbone after all. He right, it’s not worth the risk of getting deeper into a huge mistake.

  36. modhner1 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:24 PM

    It was a matter of time. Howie Roseman has Lurie in his corner. Eagles front office is dysfunctional. As always, it starts with the owner.

  37. nfl4dummies says: Dec 29, 2015 7:24 PM

    Gimmick offense + bad evaluating talent + dropping popular talented players = Good bye.

    So many job openings in college and soon to be NFL, he’ll be out of work for a mere days.

  38. winstonjed44 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:24 PM

    Wow did not see this coming. I figured they would hire a GM and take away personnell control but not fire him so soon.

  39. GenXJay says: Dec 29, 2015 7:24 PM

    He’ll be the Bills runnung back coach before he’s not the Titans HC.

  40. draculalambert says: Dec 29, 2015 7:24 PM

    I knew it. He’s going to the Titans as I predicted

  41. dlr4skins says: Dec 29, 2015 7:24 PM

    The same genius who was going to reshape the league? Bested by Coach Gruden and those champion Redskins!

  42. dreadnok89 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:24 PM

    One of the worst coaches ever. You shoulda kept the team you inherited fool. Mike tomlin next. Its a travesty what he has done to the vaunted pittsburgh defense

  43. titansfan12 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:25 PM

    Well Titans now at least have the option if they want

  44. pg99bassist says: Dec 29, 2015 7:25 PM

    That’s the second big name coach this season to be fired directly after losing to the Redskins. If the Skins beat the Cowbows this week… Garrett might be out of work…

  45. phootballphorever says: Dec 29, 2015 7:25 PM

    So who replaces him ??

  46. thames2vvvvvvrebel89130 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:25 PM

    boy something triggered this; lurie and chip really had it out and chip lost

    charley strong, sweating slightly

  47. abanig says: Dec 29, 2015 7:25 PM

    Man! Too bad they didn’t do it two years ago. The team could have still been stacked if they had

  48. fumblenuts says: Dec 29, 2015 7:25 PM

    Please WELCOME Mike Holmgren……..

  49. bubbahotepp says: Dec 29, 2015 7:26 PM

    Hmmm…too bad. I thought Philadelphia deserved Chip Kelly.

  50. flyerfan78 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:26 PM

    I wonder if maybe Chip knew he was getting get fired and requested to be let go now in order to become available for a college job that could be opening. Rather than being locked up another week.

  51. thames2vvvvvvrebel89130 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:26 PM

    i betcha Southern Cal is really po’d they gave their hc job to helton

    Going to be interesting to see if TN takes a run at him and if so whether he accepts another NFL gig or heads back to the NCAA, where he can write his own ticket and thoroughly control the program.
    Whither the Eagles from here?

  53. espfdps says: Dec 29, 2015 7:26 PM

    Good riddance!!! Chip was a lying piece of crap who was or coached every game. All Eagles fans are glad to be rid of him!

    Who?

  55. dawiz2008 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:27 PM

    Thats what happens wwhen andy reid starts dabbing. You had his great players and booted them to comfort your ego, but all that did was show your weakness to accept and adapt.

  56. teal379 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:27 PM

    No college gigs left open for him either.

    Cold blooded – nice.

  57. patriotsdefense says: Dec 29, 2015 7:27 PM

    Josh McDainels fight in the NFC East. Both the Eagles and Giants want him.

  58. harrisonhits2 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:27 PM

  64. gofor2with3pointlead says: Dec 29, 2015 7:28 PM

    Not sure that taking a page from my Buc’s is how you build promise for your franchise, but I guess Lurie has the scratch to pay 2 head coaches while 1 is just cashing checks. Note to all prospective head coaches, have a 2 year plan on your 4 year contract.

  65. espfdps says: Dec 29, 2015 7:28 PM

    Chip put the blame on everyone else saying he wasn’t the GM when we all knew he was. Now he’s fired for his lies! Bye!!!

  66. gixrider says: Dec 29, 2015 7:28 PM

    Hmmmm…..wonder if this emboldens Jerry to cut bait on Garrett?

  67. billswillnevermove says: Dec 29, 2015 7:28 PM

    Wow!!!! I know some former Eagles that are laughing! Always said nothing but a college coach!

  68. TouchdownKANSASCITY! says: Dec 29, 2015 7:28 PM

    Didn’t even wait till Monday. Lurie must be pissed beyond belief.

  69. unkleruckus says: Dec 29, 2015 7:28 PM

    Where are all those “Chip Kelly made the right decision to get rid of McCoy and Jackson” people now? Sad part is if he was never hired the Eagles would’ve been contenders every year with the talent they had. McCoy in the backfield with Maclin and Djax at Wr, name me a scarier RB/Wr combo?

  70. nje22 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:29 PM

    Lurie is a decent owner, who is probably pissed at himself for letting Kelly get this far

  71. ravensfan56 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:29 PM

    Lol

  72. darkneptune73 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:29 PM

    No more gimmick football!

  74. thepftpoet says: Dec 29, 2015 7:29 PM

    Still a better coach than Mike McCarthy.

  75. 6ball says: Dec 29, 2015 7:29 PM

    .
    I can only envision two scenarios :

    1. Kelly asked for his release to pursue the Titans job.

    2. He was told to fire assistants and refused.
    .

  76. fanfrommontreal says: Dec 29, 2015 7:29 PM

    “We appreciate all the contributions that Chip Kelly made…”

    Yeah right.
    Sure have to appreciate the sincerity of their appreciation.

  82. youngs79 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:30 PM

    That is funny. He thought he was smarter than everyone else and got rid of all their playmakers. Go back to college Chip. Grown men can see that your arrogance was only exceeded by your ineptness.

  83. rootpain says: Dec 29, 2015 7:30 PM

    Well I guess now he’s not the GM or the coach.

  84. SparkyGump says: Dec 29, 2015 7:30 PM

    if you cant trade for mariota. get fired, so you can get hired by the team that has mariota…….and the #1 overall pick……Brilliant.

  86. trainwrecksryan says: Dec 29, 2015 7:30 PM

    I’m jumping on the Eagles bandwagon! They can right the ship and still salvage the rest of the seaso- oh wait.

    Maybe Chip threw a snowball at Laurie.

  91. aboveaveragejoe11 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:32 PM

    Kelly not only lost the team and didn’t win games, he gutted the talent and left a mess for the next regime. It will take years to come back from the Chip Kelly experiment.

  92. eglsfan says: Dec 29, 2015 7:32 PM

    Mike Mularkey on the clock

  93. 6thsense10 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:32 PM

    Congrats Philly fans. Chip the GM left your team with a huge mess. No quality wide receiver, dismantled offensive line, a high priced running back that was greatly miss used and even at his best really wasn’t more talented than the one traded away, a mess at quarterback, and a high priced corner back that gets burnt at least twice a game. What a mess. On top of that I don’t think any player respected him the way he tossed them under the bus every week and never took responsibility for his own short comings. Kelly coached and played GM with an arrogance he didn’t earn.

  94. flankerright says: Dec 29, 2015 7:32 PM

  101. drake1937 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:33 PM

    I get why they let him go, but it appears to me that it will 3-4 years to right the ship in Philly. Like everyone else here says, he belongs in an environment where people won’t talk back to him.

  102. thereisfootballwestofjersey says: Dec 29, 2015 7:33 PM

  106. djaehne says: Dec 29, 2015 7:34 PM

    Where are the Eagle fans at? In Chip Kelly we trust, remember, four months ago?

  107. wolfies30 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:34 PM

    The only way this article could get more comments than the ones on the horizon is if they hire Tebow as Head Coach and Michael Sam as DC.

  108. imodan says: Dec 29, 2015 7:34 PM

    What the hell was the Eagles owner thinking letting this overmatched mega egomaniac dump all the playmakers they had? Damn they got a lot of years ahead rebuilding what Chip destroyed.

  109. phaktor333 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:34 PM

    In this case, the GM and the coach were tied at the hip…both were inflexible and unable to adjust to pro football on the field and in the front office. DeMarco must be ecstatic.

  110. jacktatum32 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:35 PM

    Chip Kelly to Texas A&M by 01/10/2016–read it here 1st

    And Philly now what? The way he gutted the roster of the prototype NFL player to his version of football….Philly is a few years away to getting back to “normal”

  111. mjd08501 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:36 PM

    Not an Eagles fan but this is why Jeffrey Lurie is one of the best owners in the NFL. He may have made a mistake in giving Chip all the power but he was at least able to quickly recognize his mistake, admit it, and begin moving on from it

  112. swordsedg3 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:37 PM

    Wow. Geez. Who’s gonna wanna step into THAT mess? No qb, an overpriced rb that complains directly to the owner, an overpriced cb that’s been burned all year, a shaky o-line…does Gruden finally jump back in and make a play for RG3 or Kapernick, thinking he can rebuild them?

  113. jbfazz1213 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:37 PM

    Things Did Blow Up Fast. The Roster and The Season Blew Up Real Fast. Oh. Also The Salary Cap !!!

  114. jmc8888 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:37 PM

    Smart move.

    Maybe the next coach won’t be an egomaniac and will try to put the players in the best possible position to win, rather then running the best players out of town, trying to fit square pegs into round holes, and be tone deaf about the consequences of his decisions.

    I don’t know what the future has in store for the Eagles, but the mess Chip’s making was going to need to be cleaned up sometime…. might as well start now.

  115. mazz57 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:38 PM

    In Chip, you do not trust!

  116. brimab says: Dec 29, 2015 7:38 PM

    Gotta be honest, if I’m running the Titans I’m not real excited to bring in a guy who flamed out as spectacularly as Chip did.

  117. 87whines says: Dec 29, 2015 7:38 PM

    I’m sure andy reid kicking arse in KC added no pressure on lurie to make a move. Lurie whiffed on reid firing, whiffed on Kelly hiring, whiffed on GM situation. BMOC needs to look into mirror on the failures of org. He looking like jerry jones clone. step back lurie.

  118. amanistumor says: Dec 29, 2015 7:39 PM

    Key the Gruden to Philly rumors starting now.

  119. jhonnyklassik says: Dec 29, 2015 7:39 PM

    Chip sbatoged the eagles traded all their good players away lol, set the eagles back for 3 4 years. And now he going back to college or to ten, i called ilat the beginning of the year once he traded away mccoy lmao said if he misses the playoffs he will be going backnto ncaa or ten.. ahahahah

  120. briang123 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:40 PM

    Bravo to Lurie for seeing the writing on the wall and doing what is best for the team and not worrying about the costs of firing Kelly.

  121. purplepride11 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:40 PM

    Andy Reid to the eagles, kelly to the titans.

  122. idpfantasyfootball says: Dec 29, 2015 7:40 PM

    Thanks to Chip for showing us that you can not win consistently in the NFL while averaging 25 minutes or less in time of possession.

    Does this mean that Desean Jackson can come back home?

  123. nyneal says: Dec 29, 2015 7:40 PM

    Well, well. Another in the long line of college coaches who were going to come into the NFL and reinvent the wheel.

    Kelly was in way over his head and it showed big time. Now I suppose we’ll hear more from some of his players that he was a racist, which is totally unfair. He was stupid, but there’s no proof he was a racist.

    Kelly left whomever gets the job in Philly a mess to deal with. They’re stuck with Murray because of all the money they gave him, and they have a QB who’s always one hit away from being on IR and who is not young anymore.

    Maybe the NFL should combine the Eagles and Cowboys rosters. They’d win about half their games that way.

  124. jolly1234 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:40 PM

    Next humility check will come when the Titans release a statement that they are not interested…

  125. 6250claimer says: Dec 29, 2015 7:41 PM

    Texas Longhorns on Line 1. NFW he gets another NFL job at this point. He’s yet another example of a fine college coach who is completely out of his element at this level.

  126. kenmasters34 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:41 PM

    Redskins also cost Rob Ryan his job too. Its been a pretty good year for the skins

  130. joecool16 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:42 PM

    Philly fans I told you weeks ago. You have to give lurie a chance to right the ship. As a skins fan once he lost to Dan Snyder he said enough is enough. He tried chip it didn’t work out give him credit for admitting his mistake, cutting his losses, and moving on. I’m a skins fan but admire the pride and grit of Philly. Stay gritty philly!

  131. r8rs4life says: Dec 29, 2015 7:42 PM

    Bye Felicia

  132. dohczeppelin says: Dec 29, 2015 7:42 PM

    Whoa. I’m not an Eagles fan but I’m well aware of the risky moves he made this year, and how poorly they paid off. That being said, I don’t generally support the notion of firing people every time you lose a few more games than you expected. Continuity and giving a team time to develop makes a big difference. The “revolving door” coaching staffs generally don’t work out well. Figured they would give him one more season to prove himself. They had better have a hotshot candidate in mind, otherwise things very well may get worse before they get better.

    All things considered, as a Bills fan, I salute you sir, if for no other reason than trading us Mccoy (who for the record, was acting like a jerk towards you prior to eagles/bills game earlier this year, sorry about that). He was smart/quiet for most of the season but that week was frustrating to watch. Otherwise though, that was the bargain of a century.

    New Titans coach by next Monday?
    ………………………………………………….
    Titans or no other NFL team are dumb enough to give him a job!

  137. wrossi81 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:44 PM

    Chip Kelly’s NFL legacy is that he had the fastest 3-and-outs you’ve ever seen. And now he’s 3-and-out.

  138. Shinnbone says: Dec 29, 2015 7:47 PM

    Well he earned it! Go back to high school chippy.

  139. ballreaper says: Dec 29, 2015 7:48 PM

    The Eagles had to learn the hard way , This guy was never cut out to be a NFL head coach, You can’t come into the PROS and treat grown men like college kids.And when it comes to personnel thinks you DON’T need ELITE talent to win games, Your SYSTEM is the be all that could win games with anybody( talk about delusional).

    The only spot i see him working out in the NFL is as a COORDINATOR and just leave him there with no other IDEAS,Other than that College is where he needs to be.

  140. wyrdawg says: Dec 29, 2015 7:48 PM

    +1 for doing it now. Making a statement that they want their team back.

    Do yourself a favor.. totally clean house. That political battle did not do anyone any good.

  145. jacoby66forhof says: Dec 29, 2015 7:51 PM

    Wow. Well kind of expected this, but not until the season is over. Luckily for the rest of the NFC East Lurie waited a year to do this after Kelly pissed away all of Philly’s talent.

    And now what are the odds Bradford resigns in Philly? Slim I would think. That leaves Sanchize as the only viable QB option in Philly, doesn’t it? Keeps getting better and better.

    Also, thanks to the Eagles for filling the drama void left by what appears to be a Redskins team going through a culture change down in DC.

    What a dumpster fire.

    Burn Eagles Burn…

  146. bigbwoy000 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:51 PM

    Good for Lurie. Sorry grey.
    Tried to talk to ya about that ICWT stuff anyways.
    The guy was overmatched & outcoached every week & it was obvious to most.

  147. harbourimages says: Dec 29, 2015 7:52 PM

    Trying Kelly again after the last two years and all the crap with trades and the locker room issues would be like taking a swing of sour milk, saying, “God that’s awful,” putting it back in the fridge, and saying, “I’ll try it again later. Maybe it will taste better then.”

    LMAO!!! Coach Know-It-All, it seems, doesn’t! Good riddance!!!

  148. slick50ks says: Dec 29, 2015 7:52 PM

    Has anyone ever dismantled a franchise quicker than this unqualified disaster?

    And how could he ever get another job in the league again?

    It will take the ultimate in ignorance and foolishness to hire this guy. Loser franchises, line up for your latest mistake.

    Philly fans are as dumb as donkey fans.

  149. motsuret06 says: Dec 29, 2015 7:52 PM

    I do not wish any person any sort of bad luck but I would say this is the Curse of Tim Tebow at work here. The Eagles did not treat Tebow in the best of ways and now Chip Kelly has paid the price for a free vacation and a place in the unemployment line for the forseeable future.

  150. isnotreality says: Dec 29, 2015 7:55 PM

    Only 2 more left to get fired in the NFC East next week…

    Whoa. I’m not an Eagles fan but I’m well aware of the risky moves he made this year, and how poorly they paid off. That being said, I don’t generally support the notion of firing people every time you lose a few more games than you expected. Continuity and giving a team time to develop makes a big difference. The “revolving door” coaching staffs generally don’t work out well. Figured they would give him one more season to prove himself. They had better have a hotshot candidate in mind, otherwise things very well may get worse before they get better.

    All things considered, as a Bills fan, I salute you sir, if for no other reason than trading us Mccoy (who for the record, was acting like a jerk towards you prior to eagles/bills game earlier this year, sorry about that). He was smart/quiet for most of the season but that week was frustrating to watch. Otherwise though, that was the bargain of a century

    Your franchise is worse off than Philly. Just sayin.

  153. luck4president says: Dec 29, 2015 7:59 PM

    Can they get back the mistakes he made? Hello DeSean it wasn’t us it was Chip… Please? Lol

  154. connfyoozed says: Dec 29, 2015 8:01 PM

    To listen to Chip Kelly talk the last 3 years, you would have thought that he invented football. News flash, Chip: you aren’t nearly as smart, innovative or knowledgeable as you thought you were. And that smug “I know everything” act only works when you actually win something worthwhile.

  155. thegame2love says: Dec 29, 2015 8:01 PM

  160. jason9696 says: Dec 29, 2015 8:09 PM

    I remember the first game Chip Kelly coached for the Eagles and all the plays they had on offense in the first half of that game. I have never seen anything like that before and probably never will again.

  161. TheWizard says: Dec 29, 2015 8:09 PM

    Pointless to let him change the team like this, then dump him. Lurie should have kept him on or barred him from making the changes.

  162. oldcracker says: Dec 29, 2015 8:11 PM

    Hey, Haslam, talk to Lurie and get a clue!

    Now, there’s a chance Pettine can be reunited with his daddy….a pretty decent high school coach in Pennsylvania. Take your high school buddy, O’Neil, with you, too.

  163. roadtrip3500 says: Dec 29, 2015 8:19 PM

    Long-time Giants fans are thinking Ray Handley. Took a Super Bowl champion and sent them down the drain in just 2 years, highlighted by benching Simms for Hostetler and having Lawrence Taylor dropping into coverage on tight ends and fullbacks in the flat. Wellington Mara brings in an experienced coach (Dan Reeves), Simms back at QB, LT back to to rushing the passer, and presto, playoffs again and 4 separate Coach of the Year awards.

    It was possible that Coughlin and Kelly would have both coached their final games Sunday, but to get kicked to the curb with just 5 days left in the season means Lurie was beyond negotiable. At least the Giants will make any parting of ways with Coughlin more of a salute/tribute than a firing.

    Do the majority of commenters really have to crap on Eagles fans? We were excited to get him and saw great potential. Obviously it didn’t work. We’re fans for life either way. Let’s hope for a better future.

    Funny how Lurie got the dirty end of the stick when him and kraft were trying to figure out which franchise to buy. If I recall, Lurie tks kraft that the patriots were a waste and wouldn’t amount to much that the eagles were the better bet.

  168. pinkmist4 says: Dec 29, 2015 8:26 PM

    A lot harder to win when you can’t outspent the opposition with all that Nike money…..

  169. amaf21 says: Dec 29, 2015 8:26 PM

    Too bad Lurie already allowed him to gut their roster and jam up their cap with the likes of Murray. At least they didn’t lock up Bradford long term.

    The compensation that the Saints will ask for Sean Payton just keeps rising.
    Two losing seasons in a row and teams are falling over themselves to hire Payton? The NFL coaching ranks are seriously depleted.

  179. ebhaynz says: Dec 29, 2015 9:09 PM

    I mean, you get rid of ALL your playmakers and think you can still win in this league?

    The arrogance of Chip was his undoing.

  180. ebbycalvinlaloosh says: Dec 29, 2015 9:20 PM

    Chip Kelly will win a Super Bowl before the Eagles do, and it will be funny.

    I honestly think that he plotted his way out of Philly! I said that something like this would go down after Tennessee fired Whisenhunt…so far…everything is going according to plan. Chip has a Mariotta addiction & feels that he’s the only one that can run his operation (Chip’s a mad scientist & Mariota is his Frankenstein). I know the Titans brash are behind closed doors as we speak…and if all parties agree…Chip will be their new HC before the draft. Buuuuuutttt…if it comes out that what Shady, D Jack, & others were saying about him manifest itself from the current locker room then the Titans may even think twice! Chip’s a leader of kids…not men & that dynamic alone could get him blackballed! From all accounts…he sounds like a Greg Schiano in disguise! This is reality TV @ it’s finest…stay tuned lol!

    ROFL.

    Who knew the Redskins would be the most stable and best run organization in the NFC East?

    Next to be buried (and literally) is the corpse at the New York Nightmaras, the crime syndicate of the league.

    And you know that the Dallas Rump Rider owner/GM/doctor/psychic/know-it-all Jerruh Jones won’t fire his hand-picked dingleberry of a head coach. You just can’t find this quality of a suck up and lap dog just anywhere!
