To the surprise of many, Brian Kelly might be done as head coach of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. If reports are correct, and no one is denying anything, Kelly has interviewed for the head coaching job with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Kelly, who has left the country on a vacation, spoke to the Eagles before he left and apparently after the Irish got rocked by Alabama in the national title game Monday night.

Kelly is the third college coach the Eagles have spoken to about their job opening since Philadelphia fired Andy Reid. Already turning down the Eagles were Oregon coach Chip Kelly and Penn State coach Bill O’Brien. The Eagles have in total interview six applicants for the job.

Reports out of Chicago also claim the Bears want to speak with Brian Kelly about their head coaching job. The Bears whacked Lovie Smith who, ironically, is next up on the Eagles list to speak to.

If other reports are to be believed Brian Kelly will talk again with Philly when he returns from his trip at the end of the week. Before the national championship game, Kelly denied being interested in an NFL gig saying “I already have the best job in the country, NFL, college, high school, whatever. I just look at the place that I am at and I’m thankful for the opportunity that I have.”

Kelly has a solid incoming class and recruiting is going well from all indications. He is signed through 2016 to coach Notre Dame.
