Multiple news sources are reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles have met with Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly and that the two sides will meet again early next week. When asked about joining the NFL coaching ranks prior to the National Championship game, Kelly told reporters that leaving “is not an option.” Something changed.
The Eagles have now interviewed six coaching candidates and plan to interview with former Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith as the search for a replacement for Andy Reid continues.
Kelly has coached the Fighting Irish for three seasons, putting together a 28-11 overall record. He lead Notre Dame to a 12-0 regular season mark and a trip to the National Championship game where they were destroyed by Alabama
