Your Team, Your Town….Your Next 76ers Head Coach?

Aaron McKie is a current 76ers Assistant Coach. Could he end up being the Head Coach?While the San Antonio Spurs battle the Miami Heat in a star-studded dramatic NBA Finals, our beloved and beleaguered 76ers await another marginal lottery draft pick. With the #11 overall choice it’s wide-open as to who they select or how the draft pieces fall. The question that needs to be answered is who will be the next head coach to lead the 76ers from below mediocrity to yearly playoff contender to, perhaps while I am above ground, a championship caliber team?

Thus far the only known interview was with Kelvin Sampson, former college coach at Oklahoma and menial NBA assistant who has familiarity with new GM Sam Hinkie from the Houston Rockets organization. Please please, …

The Chip Kelly and Bill Parcells Connection

New Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly is connected to Bill Parcells closer than you think.It’s odd to say, but Chip Kelly may be influenced by Bill Parcells. On the surface, it seems a rather ridiculous statement to make. Parcells was an authoritative disciplinarian over both players and coaches. He was crass and curmudgeonly. Kelly, on the other hand, appears to be more of a collaborator, a coach with distinct ideas who is willing to delegate thoughtfully. But in the NFL there is often an ebb and flow of trends and philosophies, where a stream of thought here was originally a trickle over there. It is no different between Parcells and Kelly. A common thread attaches one to the other. For them, it …

Chip Kelly New Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach

Oregon Head Coach Chip Kelly is reportedly the new Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach.According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen Oregon Head Coach Chip Kelly is leaving College Football to become the Philadelphia Eagles new Head Coach. Both men share the same agent so no surprise Mortnesen breaks the story. This is a shocking turn of events as Kelly had interviewed with the Eagles for 9 hours last week before it was reported Kelly would return to the Ducks as their head coach. No word yet on the contract length of money but the Eagles have landed their #1 choice.

This is quite a coup for Jeffrey Lurie and Howie Roseman. Kelly was courted by pretty much every NFL team (and very hard by the Joe Banner-led Cleveland Browns) and …

The Temple Owls get Offense with Rhule and Rolovich

New Temple Head Coach Matt Rhule at his Press ConferenceThe National Championship is over and so is college football. Now is the time to look ahead to next year for all teams, especially those who struggled this past season. After going 4-7 in his second season, first in the Big East, the Temple Owl’s head coach Steve Addazio left Philadelphia for a team much worse off in Boston College. The Owls, needing to fill the void at head coach, turned to New York Giants assistant Offensive Line coach Matt Rhule.

Rhule, a Penn State graduate and former player, spent six years with the Owls. Al Golden gave him a shot back in 2006 and Rhule has shown off his talents ever since. He was the offensive coordinator for the Eagle …

Because teams are scrambling to find their new head coach–two of the five teams with vacancies have already made hires. More …

Andy Reid to the Eagles Front Office?

Posted on:

Will Andy Reid be joining Jeffrey Lurie as an Eagles front office member after the season is over?What would be the reaction if Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie announces after the season that Andy Reid will be staying with the organization?

Amongst Eagles fans, I’d imagine the overwhelming reaction would be outrage. Add to that dissapointment, anger, betrayal…

There has been discussion over the air waves and in the written media lately,  that something like this just may happen. Most agree that Reid will not be the Head Coach anymore, but the possibility exists that he could move to the Front Office, in some capacity.

The Eagles are in the position they are in right now because of Reid. He not only has been the coach of this football team for the past 14 seasons, but he also has chosen …

We Appreciated Andy Reid, but It’s Time for Him to GO

Eagles Head Coach Andy Reid is a favorite of the national media but it's time for him to leave the EaglesI love a good cheerleader. Sure, I’m a man, so I love seeing the women in their outfits leading cheers on the sideline, but hey, it doesn’t matter if you’re man or woman doing it. It’s great to have any troupe on the sideline helping build pep for the team you’re rooting for, even if they’re as moribund as the Eagles are this year. Hell, I even appreciate it if the cheerleaders just happen to reside in the broadcast booth for the local sports broadcast. Say what you want about Merrill Reese and Mike Quick, but when the Eagles are …

Chip Kelly Is Not the Best Fit for Eagles’ Next Coach

Is Oregon head coach Chip Kelly the best fit for the Eagles?The Eagles seem dead in the water right now. Of all the years where Andy Reid could have lost his job, this year seems like the most likely unless the team turns it around in a way that no one will be able to see coming. I don’t want to harp on why Reid needs to go because my colleagues here have done the same for two weeks now. I want to look to the future, to who might replace Reid on the sidelines. There are three choices the Eagles could go for: an up-and-coming coordinator, a retread former head coach or a college coach. The last of the three has produced a name that is …
