His contract says so. Chip just got paid son!
Chip Kelly had turned down the NFL before, he had even turned down the Philadelphia Eagles once as well, but the contract extended to the former Oregon head coach last week was a big factor in getting Kelly to do an about face and accept the Eagles offer. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Higher salary = better coach?
my point is the Eagles are paying him like he is. This is ludacris. Coughlin wins 2 Super Bowls and Chip Kelly hasnt coached 1 down in the NFL yet. Reminds me of Rookies coming in making stupid money without have had taking a snap.
How the phuck is Chip getting over 6 mill a year?
Eagles going to Eagle.
First Vick 120 million, now Chip 32.5 million. No wonder they suck ass.

Your coach's salary has nothing to do with the team's salary cap so if your owner has a shit of money and wants a guy he'll get more money than a cheaper owner doens't seem hard to figure out..
Thanks for the brilliant observations.
If your owner is throwing 6+ million at a coach who hasn't proven shit, it's usually a pretty good sign he is a shit owner. Has nothing to do with the salary cap, has to do with common sense, and not being a dumb ass.
Even more proof, he gave Vick 120 million dollar after 1 good season.
Eagles are a joke
This, pretty much sums it up.
Looks like Eagles fans are in for a long road of disappointment with business decisions like this!
Not sure why this surprised anyone. Also it was announced a while ago. Lurie doesn't give a crap about money. He wanted chip and did whatever he could to get him. If it doesn't work out, oh well. In his mind he'd rather pay a whole lot for the guy he wanted than less for someone else he didn't want, I respect that even if it blows up in his face.
