Chip Kelly downplays college rumors

Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly downplayed growing rumors that he's going back to the college ranks. He's been linked to every school from USC to Texas and Maryland. "I understand that," Kelly said. "It's going to happen." What's the narrative? "We're not successful," Kelly said. "We're not winning. I came from college. I'm going to go back to college." Kelly said he hasn't spoken with USC. "I hope someday to be like Coach [Tom] Coughlin and win enough games where I stay around long enough where that speculation ends," Kelly said. "But I understand you have to ask the question. I answered it the same way a year ago. I answered it the same way my first year here." "It's an unfortunate part of the game. The other part of it is there are people who have lost their jobs. A friend of mine is Steve Sarkisian, who is dealing with a big issue right now. I wish him the best. That's how I look at that situation." Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle
