It doesn’t mean it won’t happen, but as of yesterday, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly had yet to hear from USC about their vacant head coaching position.

Kelly answered “no” Thursday when he was asked at a press conference about whether he or his agent had been contacted by USC or another university about a coaching opening.

“I understand that it’s going to happen. We’re not successful and we’re not winning. I came from college. We’re going to go back to college,” Kelly said of the perception of what his future will hold.

“I hope someday to be like (Giants) coach (Tom) Coughlin and win enough games where I stay around long enough where that speculation ends. But I understand you have to ask the question. I answered it the same way a year ago. I answered it the same way my first year here.

"It’s an unfortunate part of the game because the other part of it is there are people that have lost their jobs. A friend of mind, Steve Sarkisian, is dealing with a big issue right now and I wish him the best.”

Kelly is likely to spend the next several months answering questions about vacancies, especially if the 2-3 Eagles continue to struggle.
