Chip Kelly and Eagles hierarchy 'sick of each other' says Adam Schefter

This time last year, the 8-3 Philadelphia Eagles were about to run riot against the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving to extend their lead at the top of the NFC East.

Fast forward 12 months and the wheels appear to be falling off in Philly, however. After a humiliating 45-17 defeat to the Bucs, the Eagles head into Thanksgiving on a 4-6 record.


And, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Chip Kelly's position has never been under more threat - the NFL insider revealing the head coach and Philadelphia hierarchy are "sick of each other."

Schefter, speaking on the Sirius XM NFL radio show today, went on to suggest that Kelly's time as Eagles head coach could be coming to an end in the near future:

"Momentum and signs seem to be piling up against a Chip Kelly return to Philadelphia," he told the show.

Kelly, after taking on increased control of the team over the offseason, made a number of surprising roster moves that have ultimately backfired to this point.

Their record right now is good enough only for third spot in a putrid NFC East division, and the team's performances throughout the season have been wholly underwhelming considering the offseason hype.


With rumors of discontent in the locker room, Kelly - who is two-and-a-half- years into a $32.5 million five-year contract - is amongst a number of head coaches who face losing their job when the 2015 season comes to an end.

If, as Schefter reports, he is as "sick" of the Eagles front office as they are of him, you certainly wouldn't bet on him to be in the job come next season.
