The Jaguars have made their choice. And Chip Kelly… You are… NOT THE COORDINATOR.
Seriously, that’s where this is going. Chip Kelly, offensive genius, loses out on an OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR job to some cat named Nathaniel Hackett. Nathaniel Hackett.
Not the revered civil war general who fought valiantly. But Nathaniel Hacket — the guy Doug Marrone picked to be the guy to fix the Jags offense — after he spent the last two seasons… Coaching THE JAGS offense.
Chip — Bro. It’s okay. I know it’s cold-blooded. But you’re still cashing checks from the Niners and the Eagles. And if Willie Taggart and his crew send any more players to the hospital this winter, you might get a call from Phil Knight to go back to Eugene.
But damn — how far has this guy fallen? From wrestling away control of the Eagles front office. To trading away or cutting the teams best players. To getting fired and then landing in San Fran only to get gassed 17 games later.
But this has to be rock bottom, right?. Finishing second place for the opportunity to coach FLAKE HORRIBLES — even after you went into the office and interviewed for the team’s former offensive line coach and old Man Tom Coughlin?
Chin up, Chip. Those checks are still clearing
