The Chip Kelly era in Philadelphia is over.
The Eagles announced on Tuesday that they have released head coach Chip Kelly after nearly three years.
Kelly took over for Andy Reid after the 2012 season and turned a 4-12 squad into NFC East champs with a 10-6 record in 2013.
But the Eagles failed to reach the playoffs the last two seasons and decided to part ways with Kelly before Sunday’s Week 17 game against the Giants.
“We appreciate all the contributions that Chip Kelly made and wish him every success going forward,” said Eagles Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie.
Pat Shurmur will be the interim coach this Sunday.
