Published Add your comment

Chip Kelly has been fired by the Philadelphia Eagles, the team announced last night. CEO Jeffrey Lurie revealed in a letter posted to the team’s website that he had released Kelly due to the struggles the team has endured this season. The Eagles are 6-9 for the campaign and Pat Shurmur will become interim coach in time for the team’s next game against the New York Giants this weekend. It’s said the search for a new head coach will be underway soon, more on that as we have it. Meanwhile, the Indianapolis Colts have signed veteran quarterback Josh Freeman to bolster their roster, it was confirmed yesterday. Freeman was cut by the Miami Dolphins prior to the start of the 2015 season, but, with the Colts having signed Ryan Lindley as well, his new team now has five quarterbacks.
