The Eagles appear to be focused on hiring Gus Bradley as their next head coach, as the Eagles were reportedly down to Kelly and Bradley, but still have several interviews left.
Brian Kelly didn’t last more than three years at his previous coaching stints at the University of Cincinnati or Central Michigan, and after leading the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to the BCS National Companionship game in his third season, he may be ready to make another move, this time being to the NFL:
Let talks between Brian Kelly and Eagles commence. Kelly is due back in country today to attend Walter Camp dinner in New Haven tonight.

The Eagles are also reportedly interviewing Seahawks Defensive Coordinator Gus Bradley today for their head-coaching vacancy. He’s been the Seahawks’ defensive coordinator since 2009, and the team’s defense allowed a league-low 15.3 points per game this season.
If neither of these men are hired, the Eagles are scheduled to interview Bengals Offensive Coordinator Jay Gruden on Monday.
Bradley is believed to be the top choice of the Eagles, who also plan to interview Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden and Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians in the coming days.
In othe coaching news, the Indianapolis Colts announced this morning that special teams coordinator Marwan Maalouf has been relieved of his duties.
