Chip Kelly named Maxwell Club’s ‘Professional Coach of the Year’

Remember when they said it wouldn’t work? That Chip Kelly’s offense was supposed to be shut down by the big, bad NFL defenses? If only we had the time to recover all of the columns written, tweets sent, and opinions given about how Kelly would fail, because the coach had a banner year, and now he owns the hardware to prove it.

On Thursday, the Maxwell Football Club awarded the first-year Philadelphia Eagles coach as their 2013 “Professional Coach of the Year.”

Kelly guided the Eagles to an NFC East title and a playoff berth in 2013. Philadelphia finished with a  10-6 regular-season record. New Orleans defeated the Eagles in the first round of the playoffs.

With all that Chip Kelly was able to accomplish in his first season, it really makes you wonder what he can do with a full offseason to prepare, so don’t wait any longer to get your 2014 Eagles tickets today.
