The Philadelphia Eagles interviewed Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly to be their next head coach, according to the Associated Press.

Kelly is the third college coach Philadelphia interviewed as it tries to replace Andy Reid. Reid was let go on December 31st. The Eagles have talked to Penn State coach Bill O'Brien, and Oregon's Chip Kelly but both opted to stay at their schools.

Brian Kelly capped his third season as Notre Dame coach by leading the Irish to a 12-0 record through the regular season and a spot in the BCS Championship Game.

Kelly has never coached in the NFL.
