Chip Kelly Tells Peter King He’s Staying

Good job by Peter King in his MMQB to get Chip Kelly on the record:

“I made a commitment to this organization when they hired me,” Kelly told me, “and I will see it through.”

Kelly, a pragmatist, knows he’s not convincing anybody who’s convinced he’d leave for the next perfect college job, where there will be four or five JV games on the schedule and he can go recruit the next Mariota. Or three of them. “I don’t have to convince people I’m staying,” he said. “I can’t. Everyone says, ‘He’s a college guy.’ It’s going to take a while for people to look at the ticker across the bottom of the screen without my name on it for people to understand [I’m staying].”

Eagles lede in MMQB– but this is definitely the takeaway.

  1. He’s only talking about stickin around this week because McCoy is in town. He’ll dip after the Bills game is over. Pulling some Bobby Petrino type crap and leave a note Josh Huff’s locker saying goodbye.
