10:14 PM ET 12.23 | It appears all but certain that the Philadelphia Eagles will part ways with longtime head coach Andy Reid in the offseason. The move is expected to take place on New Year's Eve and the Eagles already have their top candidate to fill the void in their sights. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported on Sunday NFL Countdown that the Eagles are targeting Oregon Ducks head coach Chip Kelly as their next head coach. At the end of November, rumors swirled that Eagles GM Howie Roseman flew out to the University of Oregon to meet with Kelly. It was the first sign of Philadelphia's interest in Kelly. "I've heard talk about (Eagles GM) Howie Roseman already meeting with (Oregon head coach) Chip Kelly," said one source for a Pro Football Weekly article featuring comments from NFL personnel members. "Obviously, there are no rules preventing a GM from talking to a college coach during a (school) visit."
