There has been coaching news flying all around the press and media lately. Chip Kelly reportedly interviewed with the San Francisco 49ers. A move that seems like a good fit for both parties. Will Kelly be back on the NFL sidelines for 2016? It seems like he will be, the uber talented coach will likely find a new home shortly. Whichever team takes a risk on him whether it be the 49ers or another team will get a truly talented coach who can turn a team into a contender quickly. If Kelly doesn’t get a shot in the NFL he also met with the University of Alabama and Nick Saban. So Chip Kelly in Crimson Tide red could also be an option in the near future. Kelly isn’t the only coach who is on the move. Adam Gase the former offensive coordinator of the Bears and Broncos took the head coaching job at Miami. Gase has been highly coveted by NFL teams recently and the interest became so overwhelming for Gase that you knew he was going to be a head coach very soon. Gase replaces Dan Campbell who was the head coach for the Dolphins after Joe Philbin was fired. The Dolphins are hoping Gase’s systematic approach will result in success down in Miami. Finally the Philadelphia Eagles made headlines by announcing that Tom Coughlin will interview for their head coaching position. The Eagles have interviewed a wide variety of different candidates but you have to figure stealing Coughlin away from the Giants would be their main goal at this point. The move stirs things up in the NFC East by putting Coughlin on the enemy’s sidelines. You have to figure Coughlin would be motivated to beat the Giants and show the world what he can do as well. Despite Coughlin’s old age he still has a lot of energy and that burning passion to get even with the Giants and the naysayers might be exactly what the Eagles need to get back on track. One thing is for certain, the coaching wheel keeps on turning.
