His name is perhaps the most brought up when it comes to major head coaching vacancies in college, but it appears that Chip Kelly will be remaining in Philadelphia next season.

Sports Illustrated’s Peter King said on the Dan Patrick Show Monday that Kelly believes he will be back in Philadelphia next season:

The Eagles’ head coach had been rumored to draw interest of the Tennessee Titans, and reportedly met up with USC before they ultimately named Clay Helton their head coach Monday afternoon.

Kelly took over in Philadelphia in 2013 after four years at Oregon, where he turned the Ducks into a powerhouse out west that was attracting recruits from all over the nation, with their flashy style of play and uniforms.

In his tenure at Philadelphia, Kelly has gone 10-6 in his first two seasons, with an NFC Wild Card loss to the New Orleans Saints in the first year. This season, Kelly and the Eagles are 4-7, good for 2nd place in the NFC East.

While it appears that Kelly will be staying in Philadelphia, his name will undoubtedly come up in coaching searches, college and pro, in the future.
