Chip Kelly headlines Eagles' head coach wishlist, but who are the other candidates?

Chip Kelly is undoubtedly the top name the Philadelphia Eagles will discuss to replace Andy Reid as the team's new head coach, but there are several other candidates that are flying under the radar.

After another disappointing season, the Philadelphia Eagles may be seeking change at their head coaching position, meaning Andy Reid may be coaching his last game for the team on Sunday. Oregon head coach Chip Kelly headlines the list of potential replacements, but according to, he may be seeking more control than the team is willing to sacrifice.

So, if there is not a match between the two parties, the Eagles can continue their head coaching search by examining some of the top coordinators in the league and looking for the next Andy Reid. Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy could be a potential fit as could Atlanta's Dirk Koetter and Seattle's Darrell Bevell.

All three are offensive coordinators and have shown the ability and willingness to adjust to their quarterbacks play style while bringing in an innovative scheme.

The Eagles could examine some of the league's top special teams coaches, too, after letting John Harbaugh get away as the team's special teams coach.
