Chip Kelly is on Texas’ coaching wish list to replace Mack Brown

As soon as Mack Brown officially announced his resignation as the head coach of Texas on Saturday night, fans and the media began speculating on who the Longhorns would hire.

With an athletic program as wealthy as Texas, nearly every name has to be considered in play until completely ruled out. That includes first-year Philadelphia head coach Chip Kelly. According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Kelly is near the top of new AD Steve Patterson’s wish list.

Through his first 13 games with the Eagles, Kelly has coached the team to an 8-5 overall record. He has Philadelphia in first place in the NFC East with just three games to play before the playoffs.

While it’s hard to imagine Kelly leaving after a very successful first-year campaign, Patterson still has to make a pass at the offensive mastermind.

One thing to remember is that this is simply a wish list. Nick Saban, who just reaffirmed his commitment to the Crimson Tide with a huge contract extension, is likely also at the top of Patterson’s wish list.

Who will the Texas Longhorns hire as their next head coach?
