(NEW YORK) — The Philadelphia Eagles interviewed Notre Dame Irish head coach Brian Kelly on Tuesday, according to league sources who told ESPN.
Kelly met with the Eagles on Tuesday, a day after his team suffered a 42-14 beating of Alabama in the national title game.
The Irish head coach and the organization had a mutual interest, according to league sources. Kelly left the country after the interview and the two sides will resume talks this weekend, according to ESPN.com.
When asked questions on Saturday if Kelly would make the jump to the NFL, he shot down the possibility.
“I think from my perspective I’ve got the best job in the country, NFL, college, high school, whatever,” Kelly said. “I just look at the place that I’m at and thankful for the opportunity that I have.”
The Eagles have been seeking a coach since firing Andy Reid after the team went 4-12 in 2012.
